Posts Tagged ‘video of beach erosion in Pelican Bay’

After posting the article below about the beach erosion where Clam Pass meets the Sandbar beach in Pelican Bay in Naples, FL, I decided to go down there to snap a quick video.  I live on the Northern end of Pelican Bay and frequent the Sandpiper Restaurant as it is closer to my condo.  I hadn’t been down to the South beach pavilion in at least a year.  Of course I totally forgot the South boardwalk is closed for restoration until November 1st. 

My next decision was to go the Clam Pass Park beach area and film looking North at  the Sandbar Beach.  I then realized that I didn’t have a Collier County beach parking sticker.  Since I live in Pelican Bay, it is very rarely that I travel to another beach.  I picked up my sticker at Veteran’s Park off Immokalee.  This sticker is free to all Collier County residents with proof of residency.  I showed my driver’s license and vehicle registration and was out of the office in just a matter of minutes with my parking sticker.  Without the parking sticker, I would have paid $8.00 for parking.

The Clam Pass park has a set up similar to Pelican Bay where a tram travels from the parking lot on a boardwalk through the mangroves to the beach.  There is a beach pavilion there with restrooms and a concession stand.

Here’s the video I shot of the erosion near the Sandbar Beach in Pelican Bay.  You’ll note the concrete erosion barriers the county has put in place.

Here’s a few still shots of the area. In this photo you can see the stumps of old trees.

Hopefully Collier County & the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers will come up with a way to stop this erosion.  When my brother James visits me from Chicago, he loves to fish in this area.  I wonder how the erosion will affect his fishing.
