Well, Thursday had wind, rain, waves and then the lightning.
The spray from the waves were amazing on Sunday. Becoming obsessed with waves.
On Wednesday decided to take a ride to the Back Shore and on Shore Road. Lots of wave action a couple of hours after high tide.
Venturing out today around 1:00pm, I caught the tail end of the storm. The winds were still blizzarding and great gusts of snow made places like Brace Cove impossible to photograph. The tide was super high at Good Harbor Beach, but not as high as some recent storms. The waves were tremendous, although they weren’t the ginormous rollers of many nor’easters either.

The newly restored causeway weathered the storm beautifully. By day’s end the waves had settled but this morning at high tide they were still packing some fury. In the next photo, I am standing on the far side of the pond, looking towards Brace Cove. As you can see, the waves were crashing into the causeway.
What an awesome display of Mother Nature’s power.
Even a couple of days after the snow the waves were letting us know that Mother Nature is in charge.
Love the waves on Tuesday, they were good body surfing waves.
Even though we did not get a lot of snow this winter, the wind, music of the ocean and the waves have been really impressive.
Towering waves and beautiful spindrifts all along the back shore today.

Get out and have a walk!
Or come take some photos and share them with us!
How many when there are huge waves on the back shore do you see people venturing out onto the rocks? Not a great idea. Must respect mother nature, not thumb your nose at her.
Right toward the end a rogue wave came and I snatched my camera and tripod just before it would have been completely submerged by the wave.
See the black silhouette in the left hand frame of the video? That’s my buddy Steve Hollinger, the genius inventor who created the Kayalu n clamp and RAM mount’s that I use to stabilize my video camera when we are going to be out in salty conditions.
Steve took this picture of me as I was scouting the scene to video tape-
A lone surfer with board was looking at it but sense prevailed. At low tide there was no way to get into the water without having your brains bashed out by Cape Ann granite.

Also included are some shots of some cute plump birds dabbling in the rocks. Same ones we saw at the end of Dogbar Breakwater last week. They are amazing little flyers in formation.
