Long gone are the days of calm seas in these parts. The Pacific Ocean region has been experiencing storm after storm the past 10 days, BUT we were able to catch a break in the action to get a few photos.
One of the most exciting things about living along the ocean is being able to literally watch each new storm front come through. Even though these photos look dark and scary....the wind was calm and it wasn't nearly as cold as we thought it would be.
My husband and I had never seen this species of bird on our beaches. They look like a sandpiper on steroids, lol! Seriously, they are about the size of a seagull with the long sandpiper beak.
Do you know what they are? They weren't intimidated by the high seas or stormy weather, just me!
I got a bit too close for comfort and those pretty birds flew away...bummer. Even a bigger bummer was that my good camera with zoom lens had a battery that was dead (reminder to check battery before leaving home).
Here comes the next big storm and it was moving pretty fast. We started walking back to the truck...then shuffling...then jogging! It was a "bit" intimidating and I'm a scaredy-cat.
Oh, while jogging back to the truck we found this float from a boat named, Doreen. If you're missing this, then come over and let us know. Doreen is hanging in the backyard now!
Do you love to storm watch too?
P.S. I hope you get a chance to check out the Vietri Coastal Dinnerware sale too!
