    I was at the Fort Casey park a couple years ago, at the north end of Admiralty Bay, and couldn't help but notice all the bluff erosion on the beach side of the old fort, and wondered how long the rest would hold. It was clearly headed in that direction. And they knew it - because of erosion they've had to put in metal support beams to hold up the old fort structures on the beach side. Look, it's a beautiful place, sure. But why were they surprised this happened?
