The Coastal Florida barrier island are really spits of shifting sand that move in and out and back and forth with the seasons and the weather. However, they are also beautiful places to live.
When hurricanes Frances and Jean in 2004 and then Wilma in 2005 came through, much of the coastal shorline along expensive Singer Island returned from where it came...the sea floor.
The gov't has long used beach replenishment as a means to restore the beach and its expensive real estate and give condos owners confidence. Replenishment is always temporary so the next solution are these piles of rocks designed to break up the waves before they can erode the shore.
