Noticed that on FB too. I know at our camp what use to be a 30x 50' about a foot deep hole has turned into a good sized bowl over the last 9 years. Every year there's slight changes too.

That's cool.  Maybe the sand will cleanse the tacky memorials.

Yup, just got back and the changes everywhere are very noticeable.  Some of the bowls are not recognizable from earlier in the season.

I absolutely agree!!  seems like everyone needs their 15 minutes of fame, scabbing on and building janky sheet in the dunes.

Been a few a few years since  I haven’t had a late April or early May trip . This year I didn’t make it out 🙁.  It does always get me how different the sand is. The bowls fill in weird and the places you expect firm sand are full of loose fill. This ones from a couple years ago.403AE327-0A1D-4C92-B060-5626F1F1A856.thumb.jpeg.29feebdf81323330bcfdfcb2ab56db43.jpeg

Yup, duned a few days with Kat and things have changed since I was out a month ago. 

But have no fear, I’ve been coming out here for over 45 years and Mother G has always kept it interesting. 

Love her for what she is and you will never be disappointed.

What do you mean? I can do the same bowl 4 times in an afternoon and still not know I have been running in circles!
