beach destruction
May 09, 2015 01:04PM
Got home Monday after the waves struck, only to find the streets jammed with boats taken out of the water and sand in all beachfront establishments, with the palapas on Playa Panteon filled with a two meter+ load. Everyone is hoping for a little cosmic mercy when the next one hits on the 14th...

Thanks for posting. My family has been posting lots of pictures and videos of it on Facebook. Devastating! We have tickets to arrive on Monday, and will see it in person.

Well, sola, there's really not a lot of beach in Mazunte, but it'll come back as always (Ojala!) Zipolite's still in pretty good shape; hacen't gotten back to La Tijera or Tembo, yet. Fishing has returned in ernest since the second round. I'm going to look for aome alleged lost pangas next week. It may be time for the trash can & plastic bag lift salvage! If tanks of air weren't in such short supply, I'd try to rig a lift tube to move some sand...

Playa Panteon didn't suffer near so much as you might have hearsd, sola; I'll try to post post more shots tomorrow if I can coax the right camera to work. There's still plenty of sand on the beach; the main problem is too much sand under the palapas!
