    Sorry to hear the crappy news. Any more on this? 3 days ago I heard everything was gone. In November there were only 1 or 2 boats there thru the month.

    Looking at those pics and seeing each swell highlighted against he dark background on the far side of the bay reminds me of living there in 1982 during the big El Nino and watching swells like that from my window.
    Couldn't get my wetsuit on fast enough some days and it was during those swells that the remnants of the old wharf they used to make up Davis rafts from became exposed when the swells washed all the sand off the beach near the mouth of the Gordon. I was told they had been buried for 28 years.

    When the angle is right there are big swells that get in there for sure.

    I know because I used to surf them.

    Take care.

    Surreal... how that kind of power gets in there. But then, its the ocean... which can have us all eating humble pie pretty quick. Makes me wonder if the gravel bar at the mouth of the Gordon has changed.
