So far today the weather has felt relatively mild. It is deceiving. After a morning of baking and fire place preparation n and I decided to take a walk to the beach. The wind became stronger the closer we got to the beach. Interestingly all the pine trees have lost their brown needles. The road was covered with them. I have never noticed trees drop their needles so quickly. As we approached the boat ramp that leads to our neighborhood ramp we noticed that many people had turned out to see the power of mother nature. The wind was staggering. Both of our eyes were tearing and honestly my breath was taken away by the strength of the wind. I have not seen the ocean this angry in the 20 years that I have lived here in my home. It reminded me of how the ocean looked during the blizzard of 78. I managed to take some shots to share.
The boat ramp that gives us access to our beach has been damaged over the last several years. It is clear that the last section of the ramp will most likely be washed out to see or at the very least displaced from the bottom of the hill. The power of the ocean is simply amazing.
Hope you are all safe and sound.
