The water in our canal has not changed since the high tide this morning. I went around and raised some of the boat lifts of my neighbors who I know are out of town. I also tied some off that weren't tied in in anyway. My neighbor across the canal with Go Gators on his boat (HH Knows) was sitting in the water this morning and was about an inch away of floating off at high tided when I went over and raised his boat and tied it off. Last night when I talked to him he said it was up all the way, but it wasn't - I raised it another 6", and tied it off so I won't have to swim down the canal after it tonight. ;-) A thing I've done with my own boat before! LOL

Couldnt work today. If nobody has gone out i took a few pix
here is what the town beach looked like just sfter the tide started going down the ramp

The point beyond the ramp

The waves underminded the start of the fishing pier and waves erre at the bath house

Anyone have pics of the canals in Gulf Cove? Curious about the levels there. Wish I would have put a web cam up.

Over the next few days you'll likely see dock boards, dock steps, whole sections of docks, branches, etc floating by. Happens every good storm like this.
