One odd trait regarding the Roanoke Sound is that it does not have lunar tides. However, when the wind blows very hard in one direction for a sustained period you’ll find either high or low levels depending upon the direction. High if it’s blowing on-shore, low if it’s blowing off-shore.

Well, this past week we had hard off-shore winds (30+ mph). This left us with water levels so low we had to cease waverunner rentals to prevent damage to the skis.

Fortunately, the wind is dying down today and the water is coming back. Looks like it will be a great week.
