Large Sandbags Near Osprey Walk Exposed

During an aeriel picture flyover of Dewees, I took several shots of the sandbags that have been exposed near Osprey Walk.  According to Gary McGraw the sandbags were installed after Hurrican Davis in 1978.  Hurricane Davis breached the sand dunes and broke in Lake Timicau.  According to Gary, the island’s owners back than obtained a permit to repair the dunes and install the sandbags.  They have been covered up for many years.  They have been exposed as the front beach has eroded over the past 18 to 24 months.  Check out this picture:
