A sign reading “No Beach” was on Palm Beach.
Surfers rejoiced and rode 12-footers near the Juno Beach Pier.
Waves lapped the steps leading up to the Jupiter Civic Center.
Surf crashed over the jetty at the Boynton Beach Inlet.
Last week’s big waves brought havoc and happiness to beaches from Boca Raton north to Tequesta in Palm Beach County.
