Good Fences ~ Edition 12 ~

New Jersey has some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast.
The beaches in Cape May are exceptional. 
 
 Here are some of the amazing fences that protect these special areas,
and help shelter the community in the event of a storm.
 
Most of the dunes and fences were of no help during Super Storm Sandy,
but they have been rebuilt in hopes of protecting this area,
should it ever happen again.
 
Natural dunes are much more effective then man made ones.

These wood fences help control both the snow and the sand,
from blowing and also helps to prevent beach erosion.

They can be seen year round on the New Jersey shore beaches.

I am super excited to be sharing these pretty beach fences with
for Good Fences.
Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!!
And many thanks to Thereas for hosting Good Fences,
and bringing us all togther.

  2. All that lovely sand!!! I wonder why the natural dunes are more effective than man-made - something about the shape catching the wind better, perhaps?

  30. Beautiful beach scenes - I love this type of fence in the dunes - they are part of the landscape in such a charming way that without them, the beach might look as though it's missing something.

  33. I know snow fences are very effective- so these sand fences most likely are too. What gorgeous beach views!

  34. It's a gorgeous beach! We all should be in prayer that such things DO NOT happen again!
