Local Resident

For 50 years, no work has been done along this coast. The sand is moved around, but where are the boulders and blocs? We try a lot of things recommended by the consultants and then every time it washes away with the first wave. When there were blocks, the beach stayed! The problem today is that there is no more money, that's true.  But from the time we could have done something, the beaches would not have become like this. You still have to wonder about the way that it was set up by our ancestors. We can take the example of the village of Talmond, which was erected several centuries ago. It has been done with the means they had by the time and we know that it did not move. It stayed still even during Xynthia and all other storms. We can figure out that there are many ways to get protected from the sea.
