In the beginning there was... reef.

Beacon's, in the morning, without her make-up. She's beautiful, as always, but a little sand does wonders.

Day one: Setting up shop. The sand man cometh.

Day one: Just north of Bamboo's, in front of North Peak.

Day five (held hostage): Let it flow.

Second to last day: Looks like the frosting on a cake being smoothed into  place.

Last day: The view, looking south from Grandview. Those poor souls got grunion eggs instead.

Last day: Lots of sand. Let's hope it lasts the winter.

The first steps on the moon, er, on Beacon's.

Not a pretty picture.
