They have really gotten alot done in the past two days. I was excited to see the heavy equipment show up last week. (Guess I'm one of those weird women that gets excited when heavy equipment shows up.)

Randy,

I have to tell you that is an awesome picture. One of the best panoramic views I have seen. I recommend that one be sent to the historical archives for future reference. Someday I can see the Pass, a resort on the Sound, boats passing into the Gulf...what a vision. Thanks for the update.

Randy - You have a perfect vantage point for sharing the progress with everyone here. Thanks and it's a beautiful picture!

Can you see the brown sand behind Sugar Beach also?

RandyMetro,

Your photo provides a lot of perspective of the beginning of the reconstruction of the Navarre Beach State Park, which in the next few months will revert back to Santa Rosa County. The large heavy equipment to the right of the entrance to the Park is a sifter. The bulldozers create huge piles of sand. However, the sand has a lot of debris caused by Hurricane Ivan on September 16, 2004 and Hurricane Dennis on July 10, 2005. The Florida DEP requires that the sand be sifted in order to meet coastal regulations.

Randy, thanks for photographing this important activity. You are now the Official Watch Dog for the Park reconstruction. Being that your penthouse is on the very eastern end of the beach you will have a good birds-eye-view of the Park’s progress.

Way cool, Randy.

You sure do have a great vantage point from your location.

I'm picturing a webcam shooting a 180 degree radius from your east balcony.

That would be pretty cool too.
I'm the MAYOR - gotta love me !

Though I have never observed, have "heard" of nice sand being "taken" from projects for ? use "elsewhere". Keep an eye on 'em?
Cheers, Pete

Sometimes you have to get rid of sand to make progress and then buy more later. The trick is, keep the sand on Navarre Beach and buy only the correct sand when replacing.

By the way, some of the sand they were moving in the park this afternoon had a red tint to it. Is that because it is road base?

I didn't think any red clay dirt could be transported south of 98 ... am I wrong? I don't like that red clay dirt, or sand ... it is nasty stuff. Sounds good for a country western tune "Red Dirt Road", but it doesn't belong on the beach!
