A Little Wave Action From Hurricane Earl

When we awoke this morning, the last remnants of Earl had already blown through leaving us with some much needed rain and the enjoyment of some wave action that lasted throughout the entire day. We headed over to Acadia National Park to capture some shots.

 We weren't the only ones that had the same idea.






Besides the rain, Earl left us with no damage, blue skies,
rolling waves and a most welcome breath of fresh salt air!

Those people down on the rocks are nuts. Remember last year? So dangerous.

What gorgeous surf pictures!
Glad Earl left y'all unscathed.

Have a wonderful Sunday and Labor Day!

Beautiful and breathtaking. Thanks for sharing the inspiring aftereffects that are so "positive" in our eye's view, even though they come from a "negative" that could have been dangerous...
One of the reasons I love watching surf and waves and tide is because it reminds me of the raw power of that huge body of water. It can be so awesome and pleasurable for us to enjoy, and in a matter of moments it can literally destroy and take life.... wow...
Loved visiting...It's beautiful.
Hugs to you Lili.

Fabulous - glad that was the extent of it and glad you could enjoy it.

Beautiful!! But that one shot with people in it puts it in perspective. Very large boulders and such. Didn't look that imposing without the people.

Wow! Your photos are gorgeous. I'm so happy to hear everything turned out well.

Beautiful shots, the rocky coastline and crashing waves! We didn't get anything, not even much rain or wind, but we do have amazing weather now! I was actually hoping for a little more wave action to open up our creek a little more. Mr. Tide always says I should be careful what I wish for!

I remember
the summers
visiting my
in Florida on
the Gulf, right
before a tropical
storm was on
the way....We
thought it was
very exciting!
Grampa would let
us take his metal
detector down
to the shore after
the storm to look
for treasures!
And we loved the
wild surf and how
cozy everything
felt inside. Of
course, that is
a child's view of
what could be a
sounds like you
will be okay.
Great pics, Lili!

Great shots Lili! I know your feelings that day as we shared them here. I'm looking forward to taking Purrfection out of the water soon. You can rest assured when they are on
land. I love the shot of you on the boat!! Have a great weekend... Susan:)

We just returned from our trip to Bermuda - and the seas were as calm as a farm pond - amazing! We had a fabulous time - (but I was hoping for a visit your way!)
