High Tide Still An Issue But Calming Down
SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY …. The waves are still pushing pretty far up the beaches, so watch yourself when you drive out there. The point is really deceiving at low tide so be prepared to move. Especially if you are on the edge of the actual point. That whole area gets wet at high tide.
We should see calmer waves in the next day or so and it will be easier to deal with high tide. The weekend is looking good in the surf. Keep an eye on the swales at high tide if they fill in you can be trapped in an area until the water recedes. Do not drive through the water you will sink to your frame.
We really need a break from the rain it has been ridiculous. Fishing has been decent and about back to normal since the storms we dealt with last week.
