Ida closes Bowden Way

Ida brought an overbearing surf and pushed enough sand around to close J. Earle Bowden Way.  This is also known as the “road to Navarre” on the east side of Pensacola Beach. On my way to work, I was stopped by this roadblock. You can see the sand completely covered the road. In some places, you could see where the water crossed the road (click to enlarge):


I had to turn around and head back the other direction. You can see just barely see Portofino in the distance:


I’m not sure if this is re-opened now or not… please comment if you know otherwise!
