Wordless Wednesday ~ Coastal Erosion in Happisburgh, Norfolk, UK

Coastal erosion is in our minds on a continuous basis.  If you walk along the coast in Norfolk on a regular basis you see it’s clear signs. This picture of the beach at Happisburgh, UK must have been taken in Summer 2013/14 or 15.

  1. Coastal erosion is frightening for those living nearby. It’s been said that California will fall into the Pacific ocean one day. It would be interesting to see a study of continental landmasses over the centuries. I’m sure there’s at least one out there. Your photos are a good example. Thanks for sharing them!

    1. Hi Debbie, yes it is scary but if we think that there used to be only one continent at the beginning then we realise that these changes happen. It’s just bad that we help so much with climate change. I have to admit I know nothing about coastal erosion elsewhere. Will see if I can find a map like that. Thanks for stopping by! 🙋‍♀️🐝
