Upcoming Forecast

Fun swell we got this past week. Hope you got some.  Nice cleanup on Friday at certain spots.  Nothing epic but not too bad for spring. 

 Nothing too dramatic upcoming the next few weeks.  Alot of unseasonal West winds and winds picking up next Sunday for a possible Windchop event.  Long term wind forecasts have the winds picking up out the NE/E possible at 15/20 knts or more. This would last from Sunday into labor day.  What the heall , not much but at least we might be able to get wet in our own backyard for a change.  Enjoy

Save the Biscayne Nature Center from Budget Cuts

I got this in my inbox today. If you've never been, the Biscayne Nature Center is a truly special place in south Florida. It offers many city kids the oppurtunity to experience a natural coastal setting and learn about another world so close to home. Its really a great place and I urge you to lend them your voice if you can.

Friends of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center:
Help us save the Biscayne Nature Center from threatened budget cuts! We need your voice.

We are asking for your immediate help at a critical time. We know that many of you have visited the Biscayne Nature Center on Key Biscayne and participated in our many programs from Seagrass Adventures to Fossil Reef Walks to Native Plant Restorations. You have helped us to keep Marjory's dream alive for a nature center by the sea that serves tens of
thousands of children and adults each year.

Due to budget cuts, the School Board is forced to find programs to slash, and the school program with Dade County teachers at the Biscayne Nature Center is one possibility. At a time when the threats to our marine environment have never been greater, we need to enhance student knowledge about coastal and marine ecology. Clearly, the BNC's marine science education program in one of the best in Florida and will become more important in the coming years.

Forecast for the week

After a marginal spring we are getting to the time of year when things slow down considerably.  Unfortunately things don't look good for the next week to 10 days. A small backround swell continues in Central/North fla thru the week.  The small local wavlets we have had around here die out as the winds decrease and go more Southerly.   Models show some potential from a low off the NE but it is mainly over land and looks like it will not get enough traction off the ocean to send us much. Still, that is a system to bear watching. Lets try to keep things on the positive side so King Neptune can reward us soon.  Enjoy
