I can not speak for anyone but myself but perhaps it is because this issue has been addressed several times previously or that I may have provided an answer that reflected negatively on the condition of the beach, thus possibly giving other prospective vacationers, reason to re-think their vacation plans.

If the latter is the case, I can assure everyone, Navarre is as strong as ever and all will have plenty of sand, water and fun to enjoy. Come on down....I am! In fact, it will be my second of three trips down this summer!

I think the messages from earlier got moved over to the forum titles Beach Restoration. My earlier comment was moved also. I have a specific concern in getting a beachwheelchair onto the sand but I can see where too much conversation about the possible change in beach conditions might not be a happy comment. Its truly a wonderful place and its still 100% better than any other beach I have ever seen.

I was the one who had posted the question. I didn't realize there was another forum for erosion. Reason I had asked was that the view westward from the cam looked like it had eroded since last year, or maybe the sea oats just filled in nicely.

Anyhow, we will be there in 2 months. Family has been going for 20 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. It is still one of the most beautiful beaches with the most wonderful people. It's the one week a year we are truly at peace.

Thanks

One other thing - my question was more of a concern about the erosion - nothing would stop me from going to Navarre. I just know how much time and effort was put into the restoration of the beach and the berm/sand oats.

We took a supper to the beach last evening (cheese, sausage, garlic olive hummas, some olive tampenade, crackers, fruit, etc. - wine) - went over the handicapped ramp walk-over about halfway down (near Michigan intersection - can roll the cooler with chairs and tables strapped on - at least until get to the sand).
Besides a lot of new sand piling up by the berm (the gulf side of walkover appeared to be buried by 2-3+feet of sand in height - and several feet in width.
There was about 100-feet of sand from end of walkover to a 2-3-foot drop (high tide line?) - then 10-20 more to water.
At least at that point - a LOT of sand!
And did you all see that full moon last evening!
Cheers, Pete

Team effort - we like to try to do that once every couple of weeks during daylight savings season - occasionally with others.
