Grayton Prepares for the OIL

The county is preparing and is now bring in sand so that they can close off the coastal lakes. The big dump trucks are rolling into Grayton as the Defuniak beach entry is now the staging area for the county. Rumor has it that there are 20 dump trucks in use. My only concern is that there is no contact between beach goers and trucks, I am sure that the drivers and our beach goers are aware of each other. I am including some pictures taken earky Sunday morning. If you click on them they will enlarge.

The lake has been closed off, if you look closely you can see that the back of the lake is dry and the part that is closest to the beach is closed off. The kids are really enjoying this little mini swimming hole.

This is looking down Defuniak Street. As of right now this entry is closed off and cars are not permitted to enter the beach via this route. All beach traffic must use the Garfield entry.

This is looking back toward the staging area that is located on the Defuniak Beach entry.

Close up of the sand pile.

This is the new handicap pavillion that has been installed behind the houses located right behind the Red Bar.

Will post more photos as things begin to happen. Keep good thoughts for our beautiful beach.
