In this first work I am to make a meandering river eating away at a huge area (12x2km) of raised (about 12m) sandy ground with dunes (and some layered sand colors). I usually make maps, but tried this procedurally, so I had to find a way to mask the eroded areas in. Simple shapes, warps and masking....
I still have to hear if they want veggies, but I think they do for this era (interglacial warm).

First and second test, more to follow.

Very convincing stuff. Love the 2nd one.

I like the second too. Especially the slight foam borders at the coast lines!

Both nice.....second one is my favorite.

Love the sandbar areas. Would love to see more texturing to make it pop.

I'd say you're off to a good start.  Definitely has the look of a river in the southern U.S.
You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows...

I'm also partial to the 2nd image. Major 'wow'!

The difficulty lies in the sandbars. You can't easily get their specific shape. Maybe a real voronoi setup will help, have to try that. And I need to keep them flatter. I also had to keep the islands from clogging up the eroded areas, but that was not too hard. Work to do.....
