Countdown to Isaac - Sunday

The computer models are looking more favorable for us now, but we plan to put up our hurricane shutters and possibly hunker down on the island.  Hopefully we will escape a mandatory evacuation, although Santa Rosa County issued one for Navarre Beach earlier today:

Santa Rosa County officials have issued a mandatory evacuation order for Evacuation Zones A & B including all mobile homes, RV parks, campgrounds, those living in low-lying areas and all of Navarre Beach beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, August 27.

I was happy to be able to complete my Ft. Pickens patrol this morning.  As always, the island is most beautiful before the storm, as this rosy sunrise shows. 

There was a lot of bird activity

...and one crazy fisherman! 

Unfortunately the surf is already rough enough to erode the beach and our remaining, unhatched sea turtles nests are at high risk.
