When you visit the ocean, you walk over sand dunes to get to the beach. When you visit South Lafourche Parish and Grande Isle in Louisiana, you realize the ocean crosses dunes to work its way inland, for example, to reach New Orleans. The mayor of Grande Isle describes how his local dunes are the state's first line of defense against surging storms from the Gulf.
