More Storm

Hi! For those friends who have been asking, yes all is well and no flooding at my cottage. But hugely high tide and high surf/ big waves. Pamela packed a bigger punch than we imagined. See previous post for forecast etc...

The next day [Thursday] This is what I saw when I took Mo out out on the deck, early in the morning. The waves are crashing on the high dunes, far lower left.

This is how the beach usually looks, and where the water line usually is. All that white sand was underwater.

What looks like fog or mist is salt spray, the wind blowing the crests of the waves, flinging the drops into the air.

By noon all was normal-ish. Big puddles to wade through to get down to the water. Maybe I'll find some treasures, in a few days?



gone to the beach...


  1. I'm so glad that you are safe and sound.

  2. I hope the high tide brings you lots of goods.

  3. Darn, the blogger ate my comment again...

    I'm glad the storm wasn't too bad where you are, no flooding or power outages. I hope it left lots of fun goodies behind on the beach, too!

    It's definitely sweater-weather here today. The past several days were in between, too warm if I wore a jacket but chilly without one. I'm not ready for COLD yet, either. Usually I look forward to it but this year my joints are complaining! Oh, well, getting older sucks but the alternative is even worse!

    Have a good day and I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend!

  4. Good news!

    Hahaha Mel, I can't help but think of my Mom whenever anyone comments that "getting old sucks." Good stuff!
