After Bill.....


The storm was not as bad as it might have been which was a very good thing! Later in the day, after the warnings were called off and the sun started to shine a bit, my daughter and I ventured off toward the shore.

The surf was wonderful! The road to Peggy's Cove village was closed but there were many places safely away from the water to gain a magnificent vantage point.

Many, many people came out to see the ocean. Some were not as careful as others. I have a bit of a telephoto so my shots look closer than we are.


It was breathtaking. The air was filled with salt mist! The noise was roaring.

Daughter enjoying the spectacle.


I am so glad we made the drive out there:))

Amazing! Between the photos and your narrative, I felt like I was there.

Those people right out on the rocks are either very brave or very stupid or both. People get washed off those rocks when there hasn't been a hurricane passing by! Beautiful photos though!

We were in the Outer Banks, NC and the waves from Bill were increadable - a bit scary I might add. My sons and I were on the beach watching and we went a little to close and were knocked down. I lost my sunglasses but that was fine since we were all safe. Good lesson learned!
Namaste,
Joan
PS The photos are breath taking and your daughter is a cutie!
