High waves

On my bike ride this morning I noticed higher waves than usual. The Mediterranean looked more like the Pacific. My guess is that some of the waves were more than a meter in height. This brought out the surfistas in force. There were nearly twenty at la playa de Montgat.

With the full moon the tides, such as they are, have been higher than usual. The tides coupled with the waves have washed away a lot of sand on the beach. The normally dry mouth of the rio Alella was full of water this morning, making it impassable. Lucky for me I was biking in the opposite direction.
