Local tsunami

Those on the beach may not have noticed as there were only 5 folks there,but after watching video of the Cresent City Tsunami today I went to my deck at around 2:30 to see if I could watch to see any action here the wave was supposed to arrive then. Sure enough the level of the bay receeded to expose about 100 feet of extra beach then it filled back to the umbrellas at the end of the beach then, back out to leave about 150 feet of newly wet sand and then about 15 minutes later back to the ubrellas again in 5 minutes and then back to leaving 75 feet of exposed newly wet sand.

Can't see the sunset but that beach view was quite worth it to me. WWWAAAAHHOOO
