    There are four deflecting walls he's installed to slow the rate of erosion toward the house. There are arial photos showing how far it's come, and the shift is almost negligible since they've been installed.

    Stumps, logs, and boulders have been anchored to help slow erosion.

    Debris from the first storm we had a while ago that knocked all the power out.

    Storm debris.
    2006_1231Nekkid0028.JPG

    Boulders to help secure the broken wall.
    2006_1231Nekkid0029.JPG

    Snazzy trees.
    2006_1231Nekkid0030.JPG

    More debris. It's never built up at all along that stretch, and the amount that it has is rediculous for a couple days of storm.
    2006_1231Nekkid0031.JPG

    More securing.

    The weather has been pretty wild for this part of the world...

    In Vancouver they have this huge park on the edge of Downtown. It's all massive old growth stuff, and during the last storms we had over 3000 of the biggest trees in the park were toppled. Several areas of the park are closed to the public right now, and ironically enough they have several logging crews in there now. They figure the seawall will not be fully open again for months due to debris falling on it and destroying a few parts of it.

    This is the broken retaining wall. It made it about 15 years before a huge tree came down the river during the storm.

    We have huge problems with erosion down here also. Probably because the whole place is a big swamp.:D

    Nice pics.
