DO NOT drive through the wet sand
The Quicksand is on the ocean side of the swale
So we keep saying do not park in or drive through swales. We thought it went without saying not to try to drive between the swale and the ocean, especially do not try to cross the drain (cut). In the wettest sand possible out there besides driving into the ocean. These fellows are learning the hard and expensive way right now. Only six vehicles on the beach this morning and the fellows four wheeling for fun are now stuck. Coastal towing to the rescue. Just because you don’t see a drain, that water in the swale is actually draining below the sand towards the ocean.
Don’t park on the hump of sand between the swale and the ocean. Park above the last high tide wrack line. When the tide comes in that swale might fill with water, hundreds of feet away. Then all of a sudden you are on a sand bar surrounded by water, and can’t get out.
This vehicle survived this ordeal. Do Not Park Close To The Water At Low Tide after storms erode the beach.
