Coastal erosion


Where I live in East Yorkshire is the fastest eroding coastline in Europe. It's humbling. We're used to thinking of ourselves as impermanent, but we expect the land to be here forever. It won't.

This picture makes me think that somewhere in the world there is now a similar sign (perhaps with a blue, rather than a red, background) that reads, "Cliff Appeared, Road Now Open". I wonder where the land goes. Is East Yorkshire hauling itself onto a beach somewhere across the sea?

Nice blog, by the way, Tom.
