It’s been three weeks since we seeded the dunes with some Christmas trees, hay bales, and snow fencing. So far all looks real good in the study area from Bahia Mar to near the Iverness. Lori and I thought the Christmas trees did especially well and wished we had more than the ten or so collected.
Here is a shot of the hay bales.
The undercutting and toppling we noticed a few weeks ago was not evident and they are still building the highest dunes. The best ones were backed up to the existing dunes, since sometimes a “wind tunnel effect” was noted where the sand was scooped out between the hay and the old dune. As said before, the snow fencing was effective for building low, broad dunes in between the fencerows.
And after all that walking and hard work, a stop at our favorite watering hole was well earned. Hi Teresa!
