It's Like Watching Fireworks

When you live near the coast, the surf and the waves are often the topic of conversation.   There are beach and surf cams so the surfers and other ocean going people can keep track of the best times to be there.   Fishing boats going out.   It's not Alaska, not the Bering Sea, but it can be dangerous and beautiful all at the same time.   

And so when we hear that 20-25 foot waves are crashing in, we flock to the water to watch.   The parking areas start to fill up, cameras are in everyone's hands, and there is a lot of oohing and aaahing just like when fireworks are on display.   Will this be the biggest wave to crash over the jetty, or will there be another one just a little bigger?   It's easy to stand there for an hour, transfixed by the power of the ocean and its sound.   






Don't let those pretty skies fool you, it's been cold here.   We've had some rain, some freezing temperatures, chilly wind, and we'll gladly take it because Summer always gets to be a little too long. Now I'm trying to decide....should I do some holiday baking or save us from the indulgences that go along with it?   Maybe just one batch of fudge.   Or maybe one batch of decorated cookies.   Or maybe some pumpkin bread.    Or maybe I should get out and get some exercise instead, then decide.

Have a great Sunday and please stay safe and sane this holiday season.

Those big breakers are just breathtaking. Nothing like seeing all that power on the move. Forget the baking, go back to the beach!!!!

As always, your pictures are just stunning! We had the best November weather - awesome! Clear, sunshine and cold...my kinda fall weather. But since December 1, we've had measurable rainfall every single day. This is the wettest December on record and it's only the 14th. We have massive flooding all around us, winds, landslides - you name it! And, get this! Our coastline was having breakers that were 40-45 feet high. They were warning everybody to just stay off the sand. Period. And the captain of the Coast Guard shut down all the rivers, ports and bays to any fishing, recreation. It's been extremely dangerous everywhere. Whoohoo!! Weather's rarely boring is it?
