Figure 4.4.  (A) Large boulders excavated during construction of storm water outfall near 52nd Ave. North, Myrtle Beach (published by permission of James Daigle, Sunland Construction Inc., Eunice, Louisiana).  The boulders came from rocky deposits that lie at shallow depths beneath Grand Strand beaches.  (B) Rocks indicated by arrows exposed by beach erosion at Hurl Rocks Park, Myrtle Beach (published by permission of Paul Gayes, Coastal Carolina University, Conway, South Carolina.)  Sediment removed by storms typically returns in times of fair weather and rebuilds the beach.
