On the beach

I love walking on the beach and I do it almost every day.  It’s always different, the wind, the tide, the waves, the sky.

Low tide today.  Light west wind.

The things to be found on the beach change everyday too.  Sometimes nothing.  Today a lot of treasure.

Oh Swell!

The storm that battered the north east moved into the Atlantic and generated tremendous waves.  By the time these waves arrived in the Bahamas, several hundred miles away they were still 15+ feet.  We went to the Atlantic side of Man O War Cay to check them out.  Most of the energy of the waves is spent on the reefs in the distance,  you can see the line of breakers.  The waves arriving on shore are still huge.

Along the eastern edge of the Abacos are several breaks in the reef line which provide access from the sea of Abaco to the Atlantic.  Conditions like this are called a Rage and make the cuts impassable.
