Where Did Our Beach Go?

With the new moon upon us, we are experiencing the highest tides of the month causing Roscoe to question, Where did our beach go?

We were doing our normal sunrise walk yesterday morning to Oyster Landing. During low tides, this beach has parked cars and fishermen, but the road just ended in water. For comparison sake, the signs you see mostly submerged in water in this photo were well above water in the photos on Wednesday and we were standing on the now-submerged beach.

Would get our feety-feet wet recreating those pictures.

These are normal tides for the new moon (tides are highest at that point of the month) but it’s still always a surprise to head down expecting to walk out on the beach only to discover it only water.

Now to find that eagle.

    Lulu: “That water has a lot of nerve, covering up your beach like that!”

    Thanks for the share. That is just incredible to see the signs out there in the middle of the water. We hope the tide lowers soon and you can have your beach walks again. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend and hopefully you will find that eagle you’re looking for.

    Oh boy-no beach to walk on! I’m sure it’s VERY confusing to the Herd! Enjoy your weekend all!
