Pictures of Napatree Point / Watch Hill RI / Fort Mansfield 12-5-2012

Looking down the point from the first dune - most of the dunes along the point have been eroded


One of several "breeches" along the point where the dunes were washed through


A closer look


It is now possible to stand at the high tide line and see both the ocean and little Narragansett Bay! This doesn't bode well for future storms. Napatree may someday soon be an island similar to nearby Sandy Point.


Various bits of rubble and debris. Perhaps the meager remains of some of the post buildings?











Napatree Point proper - heavily scoured.


"New fencing" on top of Battery Wooster. Damage seen in these photos was repaired in the Spring of 2013. Similar fencing along the loading level was installed as well.




Here a metal plate was screwed over the ladder. Removed by vandals in this photo - it was replaced as well when I returned in Spring 2013


Interior shots - not much different down here.












View from front of blast apron, gun 1 looking towards the Atlantic.


The reverse view from the edge of the bluff looking back at Gun 1 - a lot less land here than used to be!


At the edge looking down - this is where the trail used to be.


A side view of the bluff - showing how much has been scoured away.


On the beach looking up at Battery Wooster.


A view looking back at Watch Hill - the beach is much flatter and wider now. No more "bulge" where Battery Connell used to be.
