Karl Pierce (left) and Les Pierce

Les Pierce was one of the few people recommending that a channel be made on the north side of the rock.(see link News Excerpts of 1940 on first page) His reasoning was that sand is brought back to the beaches from the South when waves are smaller.The opposite happened when the waves were larger and had a more Northern direction. Hmmm...considering all the sand in the bay it looks like Les was correct.
