It has been some pretty RAD surfing (as the surfers say) this week in St Augustine and much of the east coast fo Florida. We have had several Noreasters and Low pressure systems off shore and that helps .
But locally there its another reason for some good surf at St Augustine Beach. See they are dredging AKA Beach renourishment project where they have large pipes going deep in the ocean and sucking sand from other areas. Many locals say this is destroying the ecosystem . Essentially yes it can as it alters the natural course of things. Then there are the beach front hotels and homes etc that need protection. The dredge headquarters is what we locals call yankee beach , at pope road. IN FRONT OF THE NEW EMBASSY SUITES that is being built. at the south end of Anastasia State park.
You can see in the photos what it look like. There are over 600 images in this album. Hey I love shooting surfers .
Also sadly there are photos of a newborn dolphin we rescued a few days ago I spotted near the dredge. We believe it was deceased already. We do not know what the cause is yet. WE called the FWC and Marineland. I will post more details later.
So if you are surfer or recognize anyone please share. All my images are copyrighted and I often share freely but ask if you like any please purchase prints you are supporting me , a local single mom and this is my livelihood.
Below are a few and a slide show follows and here is the link : Surfing St Augustine Dredge
Have a great one.
