The web-cam at Leverick Bay is giving us a nice view of the construction for the new beach, bar, and docks. Just wondering if you, Nick, might post an artist's conception of the project. Can't wait to visit in Feb.

... and a general description of the construction method and materials (the webcam is a little fuzzy). Thanks.

We are driving the bulkhead down with a water jet and heavy telegraph pole dropped from above. The bulkhead is interlocked. On top of the bulkhead is 3ft cast concrete to stop the structure from popping. Once completed we are back filling with boulders and blinding those off with the broken , tumbled, recycled glass that Julie has started doing in the valley. Ontop of the glass goes the sand.
We are also diving the whole area before we start backfilling to relocate all living things on the sea bed including numourous star fish and conch. You are all going to love pulling up a seat or lounger and watch Leverick as its never been before.
Project next year, build new bar on the waterfront <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" />

Nick: Thanks for the construction means and methods description. With the plan diagram, watching the web cam activity now makes a lot more sense.
