Sandy swell is still here

High tide Monday morning 10-29-12 south Cocoa Beach

More post-Sandy beach pics 10-27-12

The surf is cleaning up rapidly with the NW wind.
We lost some beach but many dunes held strong.
Dunes are remarkably strong in south Cocoa Beach
There were dozens of turtle eggs washed out of late nests

Thankfully most turtle nests have hatched by late October

The day after

Buoy hit wave height of 30 feet during the night
Water was a little high at the contest site behind Coconuts yesterday

Wind has little west in it already Saturday morning so surf should begin to subside and clean up. It's a far cry from the shot above from Friday afternoon. The contest may actually be able to run heats today.

Sandy's erosion beginning in Cocoa Beach

This morning 10-26, 8 AM at N. 1st Street
This was about 2 hours after high tide 10-26
I'm thinking these seaward dunes will be lost at high tide this afternoon
