Break At Esthers

Took a ride out to Madaket today to check out the break at Smiths Point/Esthers. It's about 200 or so feet wide. When I was there, the tide was rushing out very strong. If this cut stays open, it will make a nice short cut for guys running down to the backside of the Island from Madaket. Here's a picture of the cut George Riethof took from the air. Thanks, George!

Here's another picture of the break-

There were a few seals lazing around on the beach there. Here's a few shots of them-

Here's a video clip I took of the above seal-

The old Egg Harbor boat that was taking a beating at the old Shipyard finally sank the other day. Too bad, she was a nice old boat.

Really great shots of the cut. Those plovers have their own little slice of heaven now.
Thanks for the seal photos and the video.... in the end I think he winked at me!
