Winter at Wyadup

I went to Wyadup yesterday afternoon. I am always amazed by the extent of erosion of the sandy beach at the northern end of Injidup beach. I posted shots earlier of this section of beach in February. The sand was built up so much you could walk between these rocks and the water. After the winter storms there is no sand left. All the sand, right down to the rocks underneath, has gone. The water is now quite deep where once there was sand. This cycle is repeated every year, and has been doing so as long as I can remember. Over summer the sand will gradually return again. I wonder where it all goes?
