Just about totally flat everywhere I looked on the 1.8 m morning high tide. A beautiful day for the beach otherwise with light winds, warm water and sunny skies. Out at sea the swell was coming from the east. It was about a metre out there and the period was 7 seconds. So, the beaches were showing wave faces in the knee high range – on the bombs.
The Goat should be along later with his thoughts on the outlook, so be sure to check back toward dark. I’m not dazzled by what the models are predicting for our holiday weekend right now…
Have a great day everybody and go well with your plans!
