Fay Is First Real Test for Our Beach Renourishment Program

Not much change since this morning in the weather, still blustery with occasional gusts and brief periodic rainshowers, but the heavy bands still seem to be to the east of us, over around Wakulla and stretching out into the gulf south of St. George Island. With the center of the storm tracking slowly to the northwest, I’m beginning to wonder if these heavy outer bands are even going to effect us much or not.

I took this photo around 1 o’clock this afternoon over at The Green House on White Sands Drive which is just north of Ovation, south of the state park on the northern part of the peninsula in a subdivision know as San Blas Shores. This neighborhood has fought an ongoing battle with beach erosion and I was glad to see that so far, at least, the beach restoration seems to be working wonderfully for them.

This might not look so remarkable but there have been times when during similar tropical systems I have stood on the deck of this home and watched water lap up underneath it. Huge difference in the depth of the beach now and it’s a beautiful thing to behold.
