    What's going on at Saline?

    There is a massive clearing that has been made at Saline. It's on the left of the path just behind the dunes. Yesterday there were trucks and excavators working on the site. It looks like a huge construction project. Does someone know what is happening there? Are they building that feared resort?

    I believe that it's part of the dune re-construction project necessitated by Irma's visit.

    I hope it is true that this effort is the dunes rebuilding related (and the SBH Collectivity did great job with it already). But it doesn't seem that the amount of cleanup and planning made on the left is somehow required for the rebuilding.

    Leon, that is my concern. The scale of the clearing to someone ignorant of what is needed to restore a dune makes me wonder. The leveled area must go back a couple hundred yards from the dune. It's gigantic. You could easily put a couple football fields in the space.
