Went paddling under the Atlantic Highlands Bridge.
The plan was to play in the heavy current under the bridge. We arrived much earlier than the predicted peak flood and parked out on Sandy hook near the campground. We then paddled out to the East to the end of the Hook, then back the other way up to the bridge to catch the current.
There was a decent flood current, maybe 3 knots, and bridge made some nice eddy lines to fool around in, but the lack of bottom structures prevented any standing waves or other play features.
It was a good day for paddling, cloudy early on which kept the heat at bay.
Truth: Storms go Away.
