No. But we've described it pretty well.
Bring a ladder if you want to go swimming between Constituyentes and 6th.

Wow. Just looked at a map to refresh "between Constituyentes and 6th", I didn't notice it to be that much of the beachfront to have a drop off last year, I remember it being bad right before and around the Gran Porto Real, but I can't remember it stretching all the way to 6th... that SUCKS.

Is there a way you can link us up for the map?

And to think it was just over a year ago I shot these - I was impressed and perhaps overly optimistic.

go back and check on who did not like this project from the get go
at my most optimistic i was appalled

i am looking forward to the day the beaches are exactly like they would have been if nothing had been done
and hope they will not stage a repeat performance
