I was introduced to someone today who was visiting LBI for the first time. I told him if he did not love what he saw today, he probably should not ever come back. Today was about as perfect a September on LBI as you could imagine. September is here and we could not be happier.
Leslie and Michael are now just off the coast. We should have a little swell tomorrow. If you plan on swimming in this amazing weather, please use extreme caution. Two water-savvy folks in my party, myself included, had scary experiences in the Ocean, stuck in a nasty combo of huge waves + rip tides. The first rule of Rip Tides is “Don’t Panic”. I was reminded today just how ridiculous of a rule that is because by the time you realize you need to remind yourself of Rule #1, you are already panicking. FYI, I was wearing fins. Caution is advised if you lack a floatation device. The Sea is just waiting to humble you.
