Sadly, I won't be able to make my sea turtle patrol of the shoreline along Ft. Pickens Road for the Park Service tomorrow morning. I would normally drive a Mule which isn't up to the task under these circumstances, but one of the Park Rangers will patrol in my place using an ATV.
Some of the parking areas were completely submerged.
High tide is around 9:15 a.m. tomorrow morning, so the road may be breached again. This photo was taken mid-afternoon, hours after high tide.
In some places the water washed completely over the island and into the Sound...
knocking down sand fencing much too flimsy to stand up against Mother Nature.
