Last September we wrote about the beach re-nourishment project going on at Honeymoon Island State Park in Pinellas County, Florida.

We re-visited the park this last Sunday July 31st to see how the sand had fared after the winter and spring storms in the area.  We were pleasantly surprised to see that a majority of the sand pumped onto the beach remains in place for the enjoyment of the public.  Even after a few strong winter and spring storms moved some of the sand else where, enough sand remains to make this park a joy to anyone visiting.  we noticed that entering the water along the man-made structures designed to prevent beach erosion, you can easily swim at your leisure without encountering some of the strong currents that were present along the beach in some areas in the past. The beach erosion mitigation structures have provided some very nice areas for people to enjoy the water even if they are not strong swimmers.
