Westhampton Dunes, Cupsogue beach, high tide after Earl

We headed to Cupsogue Beach at the end of Dune Road, Westhampton Dunes, around high tide. A cool-but-rough-around-the-edges blues band was playing, the perfect soundtrack.

The waves were huge, there was a sign warning against swimming, but there were people in the water. The two guys above were way out, far from the beach. I thought they were mad, even though the tide was rising and pushing them towards the shore. Found out at least one of these guys was a lifeguard--so a very strong swimmer--but still... his friend lifeguards nearly had to go rescue them.

Watching the waves, playing in the surf.

Huge breakers, clear skies.
