Today’s photo was taken near the same place as normal. The dune has been substantially altered to accommodate the new crossover so it is hard to judge. In the foreground is a mound of sand which is about six feet tall. As you can see, it is a lovely morning, and that person in the background is jogging. Those little mounds beyond the red stick are gopher mounds. The next photo is taken from the furthermost spot from the Gulf.
Where you see, the white pipe is where the first walkover was located. That red thing on the left is a front loader. The walkover will take a jog to the left and then come back to the original line. This jog was necessary to not disturb the natural dune. The access to the walkover that will be in the foreground will be one of the last items installed so the workers will be able to maneuver their equipment without tearing up the dune. To give you an idea of size the posts are six by six inches and the tallest 24 feet.
