8/29/17 Padre/Mustang Island pics

Took a ride down Bob Hall Beach and also all the way north to Fish Pass.  The erosion remains not as bad as expected.  The backbeach accretion has really pulled through to protect the foredune ridge.  Unlike Dolly back in 2008, there has yet to be seen the shearing off of the face of the fouredunes as of yet.  The washover channel at the Bowl at J.P. Luby has reactivated, no doubt due to the bulldozing of that areas forebeach by the County Coastal Parks division to assist in summer beach driving.  Headed down the Seashore today to scout.
