We took a quick drive today between 11:30-12:15 but soon realized that we shouldn’t be on the road. Strong winds whipped freezing cold salt water on us, my gear, and into my car before we decided to head for home. It was hard to fight the urge to stay out longer for “the perfect shot” but sometimes you need to know when to call it a day. Waves were crashing up and onto the circle at the end of Bearskin Neck and washing probably 4 inches of water across the street and back into the harbor on the other side. I just heard on the news that it only takes about 8-12 inches of water to carry a car away. I’m glad I wouldn’t let my husband turn around at the very end, but made him go into reverse and stay clear instead. #fighttheurgetogettheshot. We turned for home before it got too bad but saw far too many people still out on the streets. I hope they also turned for home!
At 4 degrees the sea smoke amazing me.
When the temperature is 2 degrees and the ocean water was 46 degrees, the sea smoke forms. It is awesome.
I love the snow on the streets and how pretty it always look the next day. Took a walk out to Rafe’s Chasm and it did not disappoint.
As soon as I heard the ocean singing yesterday and a friend texted me to get down to the Boulevard, went to the Boulevard and the waves and splash over did not disappoint . Actually had to run from the spray to the other side of the street.
On Wednesday when it was pouring, the Magnolia Pier looked very pretty with the wood grains.
On Tuesday at high tide the waves in the harbor were crashing over the wall. At one point I actually got drenched. How fun.
No power internet phones in Magnolia..shore road waves coming over
Almost looks like stain glass.
Still waves on Shore Road, love how the sun shines through the waves.
After work on Monday decided to go kayaking in Magnolia Harbor. You can see the remnants of all the tropical storms out at sea.
