We heard through the grapevine that some exciting developments we’re going to take place at our beach, and now the work has begun.
First we heard that a bridge would be built that would connect Pererenan Beach with Echo Beach across this waterway:

And here is the promotional video showing how the two beaches will connect:
This map shows the connection between the beaches as well as the new walkways:

Yesterday I took a few photos of the current efforts at Pererenan Beach:
The final piece of news is that the folks behind the Potato Head Beach Club just recently applied for five business licenses. (They apparently owned land at Pererenan Beach for ten years.)

As a retreat developer I am excited by this news. I did buy the land with only rumors of future beach development, and I’d be ok with keeping everything the way it is. But bringing an organization like Potato Head here is inspirational, as there are few developers who know how to make a place iconic, and I have no doubt that they will prove again that their reach will not exceed their grasp.
I only hope that my humble retreat will be a nice fit with the future of this lovely area.
