Dry Creek

A gravel berm dams the mouth of Dry Creek – not that there is any water in Dry Creek right now. Sometimes the stream really does flow and breaks through the berm, but the waves just build it back. The seawall at the old landfill is impressive, although the beach in front of it continues to erode away. I suppose the erosion may be faster than normal these days – after all, the sediment that is supposed to be here may all be stuck in that big plug of gravel ¾ mile updrift (Elwha, from this summer).
