The Beach Strip
Two ship loads of salt were dropped off this weekend, before Fridays (July 24th) shipment was dropped off the large pile that is closest to our community had the tarp removed but load was deposited on the harbour side of the uncovered pile.

The next shipment came in Sunday morning and again it was not placed with the large open pile.

During the whole weekend the piles were open and there were moderate winds out of the west at around 40km. Just to show how much the salt moves around while unloading, in the above picture the rear of the ship is relatively clean, when finished unloading and leaving the rear of the ship is covered with what looks like salt. Too many times these piles have impacted our community, yet nothing gets done.
