As most of you know I have been going on and on about the new walk over that is being constructed over the dunes. This is for our community and will allow us all to access the beach on foot or with a golf cart. My Sunday feature Fifty-Two Views of the Gulf has pretty much stuck to the pure form of looking out at the water from a common spot.
I think rather than disrupt that scene I will give a view of the progress of the walkover. This first picture I ran last Sunday but shows the beginning of the walkway.
This next picture is to give an idea of how the structure looks mechanically. It was taken on Tuesday of this week.
This is a view looking toward the Gulf.
This is a photo of the structure at about the half-way mark. You can see the views will be pretty good. Where the walkway currently is unfinished will be an observation platform.
The walkway will then take a left and end up on the beach. You can see the front loader taking more sand out of the dune to make way for the access to the beach.
That red stake is a marker to show where the middle of the walkway will be.
And now for Dan Antion, I have a photo showing a closeup of how the boards and beams are attached. Yes, Dan, that is real stainless steel on all nuts, bolts, and nails.
