    You are a master at composition. Think I'll drive the ol' golf cart down to the beach and check it out.

    Is this being done in other areas of South Walton-like Seagrove Beach? What do the beaches look like around Seaside and West Seagrove?

    This is only happening from Topsail - west to Henderson Beach (seven miles) right now.

    There are always photos being posted in the member gallery and on the photo pages on the main site.

    BL2 is correct - there is a study underway for the rest of SoWal. The earliest it could possibly begin would be next Fall but it may be years if ever.

    Kurt, thanks for letting us see what the process looks like. Being that close to the outflow, and seeing some greenish foam there, what did it smell like????Earthy???

    Went down this morning to check it out in person. There was no "earthy" smell to the project, and I was within 50 feet of where the slurry was flowing out of the pipe. After getting used to a somewhat narrower beach, it was amazing to see a section where the beach had been widened. It is huge! Hopefully it will stay that way for a while.

    It smelled like you would think. Not too strong but like rotting seaweed. The birds weren't very busy because there weren't any critters dredged up.
