High Point on SPI
Today this is mostly likely the highest topographic elevation within SPI town limits, barring all the man-made stuff. Unfortunately for this dune, it is not protected because it is not by the beach. The dune mysteriously started falling down last week.
The sign there is a clue that this is a “spec house” because it has not been sold yet. I suppose a person has rights to do whatever he or she wants with their property - and all it perfectly legal. Oh well, that was an old dune, probably here since town founder John L. Tompkins bought the five miles of sand spit back in 1950.
Goodbye, old friend.
