|John Brooks Beach Saturday Afternoon Shortly After Low Tide.|
Www.surfchex,com provides good video views of North Carolina beaches. Check it out. Thanks to Gosports1 for that link.
The first thing I did this morning was check some of the beach cams.
As you can see from the above photo, John Brooks beach is very much like it was a few days ago with the exception that the front beach has been shaped some by water coming over the hump and then running off. If you go back a few days, you'll see that the beach has not changed much.
|Cuts With Sand Filling From Back Beach.|
It was a little unusual. The strong west wind was blowing sand from the back of the beach down over the cuts and into the water.
I watched the wind this morning switch from southwest to northwest. We've had a lot of fronts and shifting wind this year.
The wind was blowing out while the tide was up this morning. That kept the water down some.
|Walton Rocks Beach Shortly After Low Tide Saturday.|
There were good numbers of shells at Walton Rocks. A few days ago after the high tide there was also a good coin line there.
|Shells At The Water Line.|
|Shell And Fossil From Today.|
There has been a lot to watch the last few months. Not a huge amount of good detecting but some, and there have been enough changes that could open things up fairly quickly.
