    Waves on Eagle and Druif beaches?

    Have there been large waves on Eagle or Druif Beaches over the last few days?

    Angelo made mention of a "wave warning", but the folks at LaCabana say it is about the same as usual.

    Strong would be the word I'd use. While they are not huge they are very strong. One took me out on Saturday and I've been playing in the waves since I was 2 years old. It really caught me by surprise.

    Meto has small craft advisories out with forecast swells of 10-11 ft. If these materialize I would expect to see surfers in the Manchebo to Aruba Beach Club areas.

    i am thinking about how difficult it is to get out of the water and making sure that the bathing suit is still ON and body parts are still where they belong.

    I just caught me by surprise because it didn't look all that strong. I was more concerned that my bathsuit top was still in place once I got up-the two little boys near me didn't need a show.

    Actually, being in the water helped my back/shoulder feel better. Master bedroom and bath are both painted now.

    Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn't ask for experience level when she takes you...
    More than a few have taken the unspoken challenge, and they often come out a lot worse for wear.
    Beware those waves, my friend, they are unforgiving.
    And a ride home in a neck brace can't be fun.
