I took a look at a few beaches yesterday to see how things were developing. The first picture shows Frederick Douglass beach.
Notice the white water. I'd estimate the waves to be three to four feet at that time. The waves were hitting from the east.
The beach was mushy. Notice the small shells and sea weed. Sea weed is an indicator that light stuff is washing up and being deposited - not what you want to see if you want to find old coins.
At least the sun wasn't beating down.
|Walton Rocks Beach Yesterday Afternoon Just After High Tide|
The waves weren't quite as high at Walton Rocks. The sea weed is covering more of the beach here. That shows that it is not being washed away as the high tide retreats.
The sea weed will often help you see where the water got to during the last high tide. The water didn't get real high up on the beach here.
