High seas!

As is usual during the “winter” months, the seas tend to be rougher and colder, affected no doubt by the weather in the northern hemisphere pushing south. But a recent trip to Grand Anse beach was shocking with the intensity of the surf that has been pounded the beach for a couple of weeks, making swimming difficult if not dangerous. (That is a photo of Grand Anse’s normal surf in the blog header)

The weeks of continuous wave action have eroded quite a bit of sand from the immediate shore area and deposited this in the first 25 feet of the sea. When you walk into the sea, it remains shallow for a fairly long distance and then the sea floor drops off sharply, instead of the normal gradual descent. The shallowness probably is a factor in the height of the incoming waves, but the power of the current itself is surprisingly strong.

Enjoy the pictures.
