High Tide Full Moon

Took a quick trip to the beach just for a breath of fresh air and saw all these people.  Now What?   I’d seen Ms Renaldi’s photo on FB of the lake in front of Sable Palm but then I’d seen South Beach  every full moon with flooded streets at high tide.  This was different, the sunset at 6:30 illuminated some of the high breaking waves.  Just beautiful!   As I got closer there was the reason, people hung in, the show by our local surfers very daring.  Beach access was blocked with yellow tape everywhere, but there they were.  Having been in some tricky situations as a press photographer, I always search for that vantage point  no one else has.   As I took the group photo and was on my way back to safety I heard them yell “run run run”  I did not look back, just ran.   ( Thanks guys ) See how far up the ocean came on the stairwell you can just see my last foot print as I sprinted the steps.    The waves as beautiful as they were at sunset are destroying turtle nests,  eroding the beach uprooting  mangroves.   The life guard stands must be half way under water by full high tide.
