It was a bright, sun-shiny day! We walked over to El Jazzy for coffee this morning and, afterward, I took a 1-1/2-hour walk on the paseo. The City and businesses are out in force cleaning up the mess. Mountains of mud are being scooped up by trucks. Streets and walkways are being powerwashed.

There’s a lot of work to be done on the beaches. Boardwalks and facilities were torn apart by the rain and mud. Huge trenches have been cut through the sand and the entire beach and shoreline need to be re-graded. I don’t know what they do about all that mud on the beach. Maybe it’s heavier than sand and will just sink? Right now, it’s not very pleasant, but the tourists are back out there sun-bathing. I don’t blame them. I saw many sad-looking people dragging their suitcases to the train station yesterday. (Click the images for bigger mud pies.)
