|Treasure Coast Beach This Morning.|
Usually it takes up to six or eight foot seas to really improve conditions, but there are other factors involved. The direction of the waves is very important, and the tides have an effect.
This time we had a brief period of north wind yesterday and then it turned. The waves this morning were hitting directly from the east.
The first beach I visited this morning is shown above. Nothing but some shallow scallops. The water had been up fairly high, but no erosion on this beach.
|Another Treasure Coast Beach This Morning.|
Note the sea weed. That is an indication of accretion, not erosion.
|Small Boat Washed Up Onto Beach|
We need to get back down to the sand levels we had back a few weeks ago and then some.
The next few days we're supposed to have 3 - 5 foot surf. On Wednesday it is supposed to be a bit higher, maybe up to seven feet.
If the wind direction stays as predicted, it won't be good. Nothing but east and then southeast winds. I'm not expecting much improvement in beach conditions from that.
I'm sticking with a 1 rating on my Treasure Coast Treasure Beach Detecting Conditions Rating Scale. I'll hope for something better but am not expecting it.
If you scout around some you probably be able to find some small cuts and slightly better spots.
I have some pictures of my favorite finds from my trip up north ready to show. I'll probably do that tomorrow.
