I understand there was quite a bit of erosion after Hurricane Irene. How bad are the beaches now? Was there any restoration? Coming down soon and looking forward to walking there

What erosion did you hear about? I've been on both recently and haven't seen anything. There was a lot of flooding and mess but that is all cleaned up.

Umm Irene went up the eastern seaboard-nowhere near the Gulf

Maybe I used the wrong hurricane name but I saw photos on the Tribune of water all the way up to the concession stands and also read that there was a lot damage to dunes at north Lido beach. I'm glad to hear that the beaches look ok

I just asked my husband, he works for Mote part time, and he said there were no damage to any of the turtle nests.

There was plenty of damage to turtle nests - here is just one article about the ones damaged on Anna Maria:

Sea turtle nests on Anna Maria Island destroyed by Tropical Storm Debby | Animal Welfare | Bradenton Herald

The damaging storm was Debby, not Irene. You can google articles about the turtle nest and beach erosion.

Yes, Debbie really did a number on the beaches. Very sad.
