What is with the loss of sand/beach north of Freo? Any ideas?

It extends at least from Port Beach through Dutchies. Also the beach around Sculpture by the Sea shows signs of erosion. Not sure if it goes farther north.

Looks like this has been a trend for some time:

Happens every year... loss of sand north of Dutch Inn groin over summer then it all reversed with NW winds over winter.
