    Like political promises and new pavement during a DR election. Both are guaranteed to disappear quickly. Some things do reappear over time. Every time I fly down I get a right side window seat to check out the outer banks islands off the Carolinas. They are slowly coming back after the last major hurricane.

    The pier and new beach are over 50% gone with the high surf last week. I just saw the photos while talking with someone in the know. Over U.S. 2M got washed away in one event that was not even considered big.

    This is NOT a Marriott property but rather would be a Marriott managed and name property. It's a franchise and not Marriott owned. (This is also the case for the other 2 projects mentioned.) If the owner can not fulfill the standards and promises (such as a beach), Marriott will pull out.

    Surfs up again this PM. Bye Bye the rest of the beach and pier.

    As for the river property... It ain't gonna happen with too much that they want to to that clearly can not be done. Cab. is unknown. The Dominican developers are big boys... but Ain't gonna happen.

    Unless the put get get to the U.S.. $100's of millions. For a wall in Sosua and a marina basin next to a river that's on a flood zone on a protected river area.

    Just a little problem with that. The sand comes via truck. The sand goes... Where? That's the problem

    Because they used rock that can stand up to water and erosion - it will all be gone by December

    The sand gets transported by subsurface currents along the coastline. Some people may actually benefit temporarily from the appearance of sand lens type dunes along their beaches but they are mobile and come and go with the tides. The big issue is long term deposition on the coral beds just off the beach. Persistent sand deposition will eventually smother the coral which, as living organisms need oxygen to survive. It’s a slow process but it can happen. Also benthic organisms living in the sediment in the intertidal zone gets impacted by the loss or deposition of large amounts of sedimentary material such as sand. Once the sand goes, it’s basically a crapshoot.

    Exactly. We have been watching this happen and new shallows have appeared that effect the ocean swells; making them break further out and become stronger hitting the shore harder with erosion effects much deeper inland.
