Dredge We Must!

Visitors to Compo Beach — and there have been many these recent, beautiful days — have wondered about all the heavy equipment near South Beach.

They’re there to dredge the Ned Dimes Marina and adjacent channel.

It’s the first time since 1993. Since then, Hurricanes Irene and Sandy — along with the natural movement of tides — have created dangerous conditions for boaters.

The project involves over 20,000 cubic yards of sand.

And in 2040 or so, we’ll do it all over again.

Photo Challenge #111

It took Michael Calise just 1 minute to nail last week’s photo challenge. He knew that Lynn U. Miller’s image was part of the anchor that sits in a small grassy area a few yards from the Ned Dimes Marina at Compo Beach.

Of course, Michael is a Compo regular, in all kinds of weather. He should have known it!

Joining Michael in the winner’s circle are Kathie Bennewitz, Seth Schachter and Tom Wall.

NOTE: The base of the anchor contains a plaque: “In memory of John J. Benjamin, 1926-1958.” Does anyone know who he was, what he did (and why he died so young)?

This week’s photo was (duh) taken before Thursday’s snowfall. If you know where photographer Maria Vailakis-Wippick spotted this, click “Comments” below. And if you know what it is and why it’s there, add that info too.
