Anchored inside of Fire Island Inlet.  On the bay side of Robert Moses State Park is nearly a three mile stretch of beach with small coves and shallow approaches.  Although the areas waters look placid, the tidal current is very strong in this section of the Great South Bay.

Democrat Point on July 16th, Fire Island, New York.  Although it’s mid-summer, water temperature is still in the 60’s and surfers are wearing full wetsuits.  It is suspected that the winds from Hurricane Arthur blew the warmer surface water out to sea and lowered the near coastal water temperatures.

As Hurricane Arthur heads up the east coast with the threat of rain, surf and rip currents, the beaches of Long Island start the weekend empty.  Although the storm is over a hundred miles away off shore, the Lifeguards of Robert Moses State Park Beach have the Red Storm Flags out.  The beaches are empty and there are no lines at the usually busy concession stand.  Other than a few curiosity seekers, a news crew is reporting on the start of the holiday weekend.
