Walker, I can't tell from your latest pictures, but has the beach an Cow Wreck stabilized, or recovered somewhat?

It has not stabilized. Still losing sand. Pay attention to the steps from the bar down to the beach.

This photo was last October (2012).


This one is last November (2012).


January of this year (2013).


This was was a few days ago. Notice that the steps down to the beach have been lowered, and still have no sand under them.


The beach looks much wider now - but only because it is summer. The water on the north side is always lower in the summer. In a few months, that wide beach will be gone.

That really sucks! We've reserved a charter for next late June - early July. Hope something good happens as I love CWB.

The last picture posted is July 2013. It has changed a lot since then. I'm sure Walker will put up some new pictures early next week.

Yes - the sand level is more than a foot lower than it was back then.
