30 People Surfing at Point Judith

The day before Hurricane Earl is supposed to hit Rhode Island, I went to Point Judith Lighthouse in Narragansett. I counted 80 people surfing and more were continuously joining in. Here I could count 30 surfers, only one of which is actually surfing. The windy conditions were making it very sloppy, and with so many people in the water they were constantly dodging each other. Thankfully while I was there nobody collided!

The history behind Chepiwanoxet is pretty crazy. It was originally an island that people fished from, then turned to a vacation spot, then a plane factory which made it a peninsula, and now a park. There are remains around which is most likely from the factory.
