King tides will not stop the camping fun
CAMPERS at Inskip Point will likely continue to have wet feet for a few more days, as high tides bring the ocean to campsites' front doors.
A king tide of 2.3m flowed into the area yesterday morning, but it wasn't the first time shin-deep water had moved into the camp grounds.
Wednesday morning's high of 2.1m was enough to soak the ground near campers, but without rain or a higher tide to add volume to the water, there was minimal disruption, with most campers in low-lying spots accommodating nature by simply packing up and shifting to higher ground.
However, the king tide's legacy will continue until Sunday, when highs of 2.3m will drop to a predicted high tide of 2.1m. Water levels at high tide will recede from then, with a predicted 1.9m high tide on Monday.
