Both houses we have photographed on Nantucket’s North Shore that were close to the edge have now been moved and new houses are being built further inland on those lots – leaving room for the bank to erode. It’s gratifying to see folks who own beach-front homes here preserve the natural state of the beach and bank. Further north of these houses, the beach has been reduced to a construction zone similar to that on  Sconset Beach.

The first photo was taken in May of 2005 and the second was taken this past Sunday – June 8, 2015.
