After Hurricane Ike hit Galveston, Texas, and neighboring seaside communities such as Freeport and Surfside (and southward all along the Texas Gulf Coast), we found this large pile of sand, pushed into place by a bulldozer that had created a pathway for residents of the street behind it. The first row of homes, closest to the water, was gone.
Between the sand pile and Gulf of Mexico, these pilings, or stilts, stood as a stark remnant of one beach house that apparently had been washed away. Someone’s retreat, their weekend getaway, or perhaps their only home, gone.
