Yesterday I told you that I was upgrading my Treasure Coast Treasure Beach Detecting Conditions Rating. I needed to look at more of the beaches before I put a numerical rating on it.
Yesterday I had a hard time deciding if it should be a 2 or 3 rating. After looking at more beaches this morning, I've decided the conditions upgrade should be to a 2. There are however some areas that are a good 3, but overall, I have to go with a 2 rating.
As you may know, my rating scale is a five point scale ranging form 1 (poor) to a 5, indicating excellent conditions.
To give some context, I rated Sandy as a 3, but in retrospect, and all things considered, it was near a 4.
If I used fractions, I would rate conditions today as being maybe a 2.5, considering that there are some 3 level areas, but most I would rate as a 2.
Here is one big long cut on South Hutchinson Island. Of course the replenishment sand is disappearing. I suggested that would b happening a few days ago and showed some exposed turtle nests.

The best beach that I saw had hundreds of yards of 4 to 7 foot cuts. That beach I would rate as a strong 3. That was not typical of what I saw around the Treasure Coast though.

I talked to Joe at Seagrape this morning. He was carrying an Excal.
Sea glass and a fossil was found at Ambersands, which had very little new erosion.

Below is a cob found yesterday afternoon. Typical small Mexican silver reale.

The surf is around 3 - 5 feet today. Tomorrow it will be decreasing slightly. I don't expect any significant change in conditions until at least tomorrow.
