“I don’t think we’re talking tens of
thousands of dollars,” he said; “it doesn’t look complicated.”
He said the Langley Wall was originally
identified as the best solution because of its aesthetic value and because
“it’s not a big job to put some sand and rock back in.”
But Henderson pointed out the wall protects
only the development corporation’s property while erosion continues to eat away
at the sand dunes to either side.
Stewart estimates the tidal action that
pulled rocks from the Langley wall, also carved more than 100 meters off of the
point between the lighthouse and the West Point Harbour.
