Water has receded significantly from flood height, by 10-15 ft and 5-6 depth, see pictures May 06 vs June 09. Water still 4 feet higher than usual or so, shoreline still expanded. Three men fishing, many people visiting the rock point. Men caught three fish, "white fish" and catfish. Spider webs visible, large insect like a grasshopper I'm not familiar with. One person fishing said an eel was caught there last year, reported to the Ministry. Kayakers visible and seagulls.

14 sailboats, jet ski, 2 kayaks and 3-4 powerboats visible during my time on the point. Last week at this time I saw 6-8 people fishing and about 20 people watching the sunset here. One person caught 4 bass in 15 minutes. The boats are honking horns loud. The young lifeguard on the beach nearby noted this is the lowest the beach has been in 6 years. It is receded by 10-14 feet since the start of the season. One person sunning themselves on the rocks a few feet into the water halfway down the point. Rocks are covered with spiders, spider webs and a large amount of fast food litter.
