The sky is still startlingly clear this morning, the deep and dark blues of the sea contrasting the paleness of a summer blue sky while thin clouds are lightly scattered across that empty blueness. A hesitant breeze is just fluttering across the dunes, that chill bite continuing to linger but maybe not as chill as it has been. It is still blowing offshore from the north east, meeting a lazy three foot swell as it peaks and crests on the shallower banks.
It is all quite beautiful.
Today’s Tide Times:

Forecast for Saturday 16th May 2020
The breeze should have less of a sting to it today as high pressure slowly drifts to the south allowing that breeze to lighten and back more westerly as the day goes on.
Otherwise we should be enjoying another bright and pleasant day with smallish and crumbly little surf.
Conditions for the Weekend
Those cold north north easterly winds will gradually ease to the west as we go into this weekend, the high pressure system slowly slipping to the south, releasing a warmer airflow.
The swell is likely to be small and fairly weak too, a couple of feet of onshore ruffled surf expected throughout the weekend.
All in all, as lockdown restrictions are lightly eased, it’s not a bad old weekend to shuffle out and blow a few cobwebs away.
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
