    ... also judging from the south end, it looks like the sand they are pumping in is pretty hearty (as in not overly silty/sediment-y). ive got my fingers crossed for some interesting bars shaping up.

    the "big machine" spits wherever it is that they are filling at that moment. basically the dredge company is starting at one end of the island (south end) and moving up the beach filling in as they go. the machine more or less stays put while a huge pipe is run, and constantly extended, up the shore. where the pipe ends determines where the sand and water mixture (known as slurry) is deposited.
