Figure 14. Drakes Is. #3. A December 19, 2000 picture shows mixed sand and gravel on the upper beach profile from dredged harbor sediment. The upper profile was about 20 cm (8 in) higher than the September 20, 2000 pre-nourishment profile. Wave-reworked beach nourishment was sloped up 70 cm (28 in) against the seawall at the end of Drakes Island Road. Since September, there was no significant buildup of sand on the lower profile out to the low-tide line.
