Additional Details:
For several miles this immense sand ridge extends along the ocean front of Cape Henry a summer resort 18 miles from Norfolk and connected by swift electric service. It is a quarter of a mile wide, nearly a hundred feet high, and represents the drift of countless centuries. It is burying the adjacent forest at the rate of several feet yearly. Nearby the first English colonists landed.
