Yesterday was quite impressive on the beach. We were under a gale warning and a high wind advisory. At the lighthouse they ended up with winds clocked at 53 MPH – it was blowing huge waves, and if the tide would have been higher it would have been even more interesting.
Luckily no one was wanting to go out to walk on The Spit. If they got into trouble there is no way we could even do much to help – probably a job for the Coast Guard, who train in this kind of weather. The conditions were pretty bad as you can see here in this video I shot with my iPhone (shameless plug). There is a lot of wind noise, so might want to turn down the volume a bit.
Nature can sure bare her teeth!
