This is for those of you who don't have Facebook!

Today, because of the Lunar Tide, the Myrtle Beach low tide would be 1-ft. lower than normal. This was supposed to occur at 1:15 PM, so we arrived at the Myrtle Beach State Park right on time. It was a cold and rainy day, so we didn't see many people, but I thought y'all might enjoy these two shots!

And not a beach-tent in sight..... :tongue3:

Here's an interesting write-up from Maryland's DNR sight on these exceptional low and high tides (called Kings Tides) which will occur until Jan 3:

King Tides are not related to climate change and are not sea level rise. The term ‘king tide’ is a non-scientific term used to describe naturally occurring, exceptionally high tides that take place when the sun and moon’s gravitational pull align making the oceans "bulge."

Wonder how high the MB tides ended up being ?

Thanks Patrish !
