Beggars Bridge Creek - Shipps Bay




I was worried that the weather was going to make today a no go, forecast had gusts to 30+, but I got up early and rechecked to forecast, and the system had slowed down a bit so I had some time. The weather was actually perfect, light wind out of the South and the temp about 50 and rising.
Decided on launching from Lovitts landing, and if you take a look at the pictures you will see a big difference in the water level from last week, the Creeds gage is up 2+ feet from last Saturday.
Not a whole lot going on, on the water since we are just breaking out of the cold weather, but I am sure a couple more days like today, and things will start sprouting. I did find a boogie board, and saw some cool looking clouds, not sure what the cause is waiting for a response from a buddy that is really into weather for an answer...
