April 2088 Update

Greetings from Selva del Mar. Dry season means howling offshore winds. And April usually means a couple of good swells. If you've been following, you know that March had some really good surf. Keep it coming!

The dry season is also a good time to get infrastructure work done at Selva Del Mar. We've been trucking in lots of rock, sand and cement.

The creek crossing uses a lot of the rock.

If the water gets to the top of the posts, driving across would be sketchy. So it's good to have a gauge. If it gets that high, you might want to use the planned footbridge. This rarely happens, though October is a pretty good bet for high water. Any other time of year, and the water level, if any, will nearly always be low enough to drive across. When it does get that high, it typically subsides within a couple of hours.

A lot of crushed rock is being graded into the roads so they won't get too muddy in the rain.

Here's what Calle Monte de Oro looks like after the upgrade. The road for lots 29-43.
House construction on this street should start soon.

Up on top of Selva Del Mar, the drainage system below the gaviones is in place.

This pictures looks toward the coast. Lots 4 and 5 are on the knoll.

Wishing you the clearest of tidepools,
