Thanks to all the rain and silted up runoff, you can really see the salt line in Indian River Bay.  Out in front of White House Beach the dirty brackish runoff is meeting the clear waters of the ocean.  There is a distinct line in the water.  Normally you can’t see this line that well, but after this storm, the water draining from the creeks and rivers is very dirty.  Normally you can feel the salt line when the air instantly cools off when you cross it (the salt line) in a boat.  Water will clear up soon enough, it is that time of year when the bacteria and algae die off and the water clears up more.  Also there are less boats this time of year not stirring up the water.
