The evening before ~ oppressively hot and still ~ not a breath of air, even at the shore.

The calm before the storm

Yesterday ~ wet and windy.

Covehead LIghthouse (click to enlarge)23 mm of rain ~ our garden was thankful ~ the soil was parched.

Winds 75 k an hour. Not as high as they predicted, but still created impressive surf for PEI.

Waves crashing over Covehead bridge.

Sarah ~ leaning back into the wind. Notice the hat in her hand? It flew off my head!

I think I’ll go wave hunting again today. They usually last for a day or two after a storm.

There’s something in me that loves the wildness 🙂

It’s exhilarating!

I’ll be back ~ with pictures.

with love,

  3. I always enjoy stopping by your blog and looking at your pictures. You take so many nature related pics, so I think that is why I find it so enjoyable. Love the sunset pics, and the wave crashing into the bridge is great also.

    your comment about loving the wildness,… so do I. Especially if there is someone at the house with me. i am not so fond of it if I’m alone. Especially if the power goes off in mid-winter! Your sunset pics are beautiful.

    Quite an experience, Kathie–your pictures really capture the whole thing. We’re hours from the shore, so we just got a little bit of rain here.XO

    Beautiful skies and sea…and clouds too. The red-trimmed corners on that little lighthouse make it look like it was painted into the photo! I clicked for a better look.

    Glad the storm was mild instead of wild Kathie – we sure do get some wild ones down here in Panama City FL since we are right on the Gulf Coast but so far so good this year, God is Awesome with his Love! :o)
