anyone recently return from Tam?

I dont know where the heck ive been for a couple days, but i just found out about the huge destructive waves and strike! I was wondering if anyone has recently returned from the tam to tell me if the beaches were ok, and did the waves change the beaches in front of each block? i am requesting a certain block in a couple of weeks and didnt know if i should change it or not!

The beach at the Tamarijn benefited greatly from mother nature!


Further info from another forum, "Lisa, we're back now and I don't have any pics from Friday of that area. However, I can say that from the pool area, we could see that the sand was over the boardwalk near the 1100-1200 buildings.

Beach conditions do change but from what I observed, this weather/wave condition reconstructed the Tam beach in some areas.

They do have some work to do on the walkway in front of Conucu Terrace as the sands was washed away from the concrete footings. The pier and concrete were hanging from the walk with nothing under it.

The waves had little impact on the beach above the Bunker Bar. That area had little change. If you can envision, the waves were coming from the west.

Similar to some occurences in the past, when you see the beach disappear from Bucuti, it reappears at the Tam.

We like the 1200 block. On our next trip, that's were we'll be."
