Pre hurricane paddle
A paddle on Conception Paddle was significant for the high tide effects - mostly alterations on the beach and what seemed to result in a clearing of debris from shore. We expected a little more wave activity but it was calm this past Saturday until the wind picked up on the way in to about 18 knots. There was no whale activity, but an interesting find was this shark egg capsule which in some regions is called a Mermaid's Purse.
