Here are the latest photos of Wasque Point as of early March 2013. These photos were taken by Janet Messineo so members could see what has been going on out there. Janet reported the following:

"Here is a shot at the parking lot that used to go to the rip.......unbelievable . It used to be a short walk to the stairs. Also at the breach, the sandbar from the Katama side is almost right in front of the parking lot."

Janet also snuck in a picture of a nice fish she caught in the Fall of 2012.

It is not often that the words "dramatic" and "planning board" belong in the same sentence, but with another ocean storm barrelling up the coast, and the sand cliff on Wasque Point eroding by the day, Tuesday evening's Edgartown planning board meeting took on an unusual air of urgency. The board held a public hearing to review of an application to move a 5,500 square foot Chappaquiddick luxury home away from the eroding coastal bank.

The planning board members, engineers, house movers, and property owner Rick Schifter all chafed at the slow grinding of government gears.

"We're trying, Mr. Schifter," said planning board member Robert Sparks. "We're not moving as fast as the ocean, but we're trying."
