This morning, a 4.07m king tide slammed into Horseshoe Bay beach with the assistance of a strong northerly wind following the wake of the monsoon trough associated with ex-tropical cyclone Olga. Magnetic Times was unable to cover the event due to flooded creeks isolating our residence and office at Bolger Bay but Horseshoe Bay local, Ms Pat Trewin, came to our help with some great Horseshoe high tide action shots.
Although we have yet to receive shots of the new Horseshoe Bay boat ramp site we understand that it has been demolished.
The following shots by Pat Trewin show Horseshoe's famous beachfront and foreshore area being innundated by the wind-assisted king tide.
Magnetic Times is looking forward to sharing more reader contribution photos from Horseshoe and Radical Bay where, we hear, similar conditions prevailed. To do this please identify the photographer's name so we can properly acknowledge them and file sizes below 100kbs are appreciated.

Horseshoe high tide
What a wonderful opportunity if anyone could get some pictures of the Radical Bay area recently targeted for development. It would give some wonderful ammunition for future arguments to record the high tide mark!
Syl Hayes In reply to Fair raises $15,000 for school What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
