I went out to take a look at some Treasure Coast beaches this afternoon. They were even more ugly than expected. A lot of sea weed had accumulated on every beach over quite a few miles.
|Fort Pierce South Jetty Park.|
The beach is now over a hundred yards wide it seems. Wonderful! You have to take a good walk just to get to the water. And the back beach is now built up so that it is probably three feet higher than it used to be. The sand doesn't look like it is as bad as last time when it was half junk.
The people in the water are out some fifty yards or so east of where people used to wade. And the old wading area is now under tons of sand.
|John Brooks Park.|
John Brooks is fairly isolated and the parking lot is not visible from the beach. It is an easy place for thieves to operate.
Be careful where you park. And don't leave valuables in the car.
Taking a look at this photo you can't help but notice the low population density on the Treasure Coast as compared to major metropolitan tourist areas like South Florida. Must be about one thousandth of the people and therefore a similar proportion of modern targets.
|Walton Rocks Beach.|
I don't have time for a regular post tonight, but wanted to get this report in and remind you to be careful about where you park.
Someone asked me about Blowing Rocks and if you could still detect there. I assume so, but can anyone tell me for sure?
That is all for tonight.
