I checked out the Bellport Beach pavilion on Monday evening as a front moved in from the east, providing some dramatic clouds as a backdrop.  The structure is still holding strong despite being completely surrounded by water and waves.  It is clearly leaning but hasn’t deteriorated much since the last big storm.   It will be interesting to see if this lasts through the winter.

Fire Island and Beyond has been monitoring the erosion at this beach for the last several years, click here to see how this situation has evolved over time.
