|The high tide can easily rise above this level, so be cautious on the breakwater.|
I wrote about the astrological reasons for these extreme tides, and you can click this link or just scroll down to the bottom of this page to find out what is making the tides so high and low.
Suffice it to say, just be cautious if you venture out onto the breakwater as the tide is coming in. We'll continue to have these extreme tides at least through the month of September. The safest time for this stroll is still after the crest of the tide, as the water begins to recede. And be sure to wear sturdy shoes, not a pair of flip-flops.
