Backhoe on the beach

The traditional tools for playing on the beach are a bucket and spade. On my recent walk down at Kiholo, I saw this person going several steps better. Name me one kid who wouldn’t love to have a backhoe at the beach.

The reason for this particular piece of equipment is made evident in the bottom photo. Beach sand, from winter storms, had piled up against the edge of the property here. The backhoe was clearing it from the edge of the property and creating a berm in the optimistic hope of preventing the problem happening again.

      One thing I like about the Bali House, a few doors down, is that they’re back a bit with a good deal of vegetation between them and the beach. Wouldn’t help much with a tsunami, but it’s something.
