This week's thematic challenege was not a challenge this time.
I have a tendancy to snap a many pictures in a row.
We finally found a weekend to visit the beach.
We knew Debby was churning way out in the Gulf, but all weather reports
didn't have her showing any signs of arriving until the afternoon we were
to come home.
We arrived on Friday.
On Saturday, her feeder bands started showing up.
After four attempts of sitting and reading on the shore,
I gave up!
But we still had a great time!
Sunday's bands of rain brought heavy winds.
(Not one correct weather report was found on this one.
She kept 'em guessing!)
Where we stay, has a yard full of pine trees. Watching them sway was amazing.
Jumping each time a limb broke and landed on the roof, was a little nerve wracking.
Transformers popped, but not the one we needed. So thankful.
We rode to the next town over to get out and see the rest of the bay.
Our beach spot is Mexico Beach, which is at the mouth of
St. Joe Bay.
The water was practically flat.
But as we drove through the rain and calm waters of the bay, we passed the
road that leads to the point dividing the bay and the gulf.
Within in quarter mile the calm turned into these pictures.
I have always been curious about being at the beach when a tropical storm came in.
And I had my chance that weekend.
It was amazing.
As I loaded the bird photos, I came across a second series of that day.
I have to share, the waves were amazing:
Click on them to see a larger view, the sea mist is pretty cool
TS Debby was quite a character to meet!
