These sickly gorgeous skies were not what we were expecting today

The sun shone, literally and figuratively on LBI today. It was not forecast to be such a winner. A washed out morning never arrived, and instead, gentle grey skies slowly gave way to as a nice a late August afternoon as you could imagine. I know I’ve said this a number of times in the 2012 season, but today was some of the nicest, cleanest, greenest, bluest water I’ve ever seen on LBI. The wildlife scene remains off-the-charts. Best of all, the overall week’s forecast has improved considerably and we now have gentle warmth, gentle winds, and some potential swell from newly forming Tropical Storms in the forecast. The big risk is too much East wind and the junk it brings: eel grass & jellies. But for now, get out there and suck every last drop out of summer 2012.

The only real downer were these clowns: the Dolphin hate these people. It is illegal to go within 50 yards of a marine mammal. This type of stalking is particularly lame. You scare them off and disrupt their mating, feeding, and play, plus you ruin it for the rest of us on the beach. The last thing you want is for wild Dolphin to get comfortable around boats: that's how they get killed.
