Nor'ester Havoc!

Nor'ester did this!
 Since we've had a rain storm or nor'ester every Monday this month,
I thought I'd show you what can happen when one hits....
^^This is the cranberry bog which is super flooded.
Normally, there is a minute pond to the left of that knoll.
^^These rocks have been uplifted by the massive waves 
that were pounding the grassy dunes that buffered the cranberry bog.
^^As we stroll along the rocks you will notice a sandy area
that did not exist a month ago.
^^This is the sandy area up close from a different vantage point!
It is now a new beach area.
^^Ron and I took advantage of this new finding and played some ball toss.
He's the best when it comes to spontaneous fun!
^^This is another view from the far side of the bog.
A clearer idea of the eroded dune height is evident
and that's where we played ball toss.

^^This is the dune area that has been washed out.
This photo was taken last February 2010.
^^Kali and I were just playing in the bog a good month ago
and now, the dune behind us is gone
with the ocean view visible.

So good ol' Mother Nature decided
 it was time for change on  our shores.
Now,we are waiting to see
what the rest of winter has in store for us.


  1. Beautiful
    Happee New Years Eve
    Benny & Lily

  2. Goodness, your landscapes are all changing, great for varied photo ops for Daddy Ron! The only thing that would change our view - would be a tornado and then, I guess we would have to find another house!

    Gee, more chances to find sea glass! How wonderful!

  3. How fascinating to live in a world that changes so rapidly around you. Must be exciting to have all of those constantly new places to explore.

    I was wondering what happened when that last 'NorEaster went through. Our darn weather folks down here seem to think that the world ends at Maine. After that, any storms that run up the Atlantic Coast just disappear, in their minds. Is there a good weather site where I can keep track of Canadian weather?

    Sophie, I hope that you, Ron, Jim and your whole extended family have the Happiest of New Years.

  4. Happy New Year Sophie and Guys...!!
    Stay safe and warm...
    Enjoy....LindaMay, CityBoy, MaleChild, Max, Mia and Misskitty

  5. Glad you came through the storm okay, Sophie!

  6. Sophie looks like you were having a great time...hope you and your Daddies have a great new years eve..and and a wonderful 2011...

  7. Wow! Looks like there's lots to explore on Tuesdays. Fascinating, thanks for sharing.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  8. Holy Cow! You guys get some fierce weather!
    I'm lovin' your new header photo, Sophie.
    Happy New Year to you and Daddy Ron and Daddy Jim.

  9. You live in such a beautiful place! I love your new header too!

    I wish you and your daddies a wonderful new year!

  10. Thank uou for sharing your world
    HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you

  11. Such an interesting post!!! It is certainly different from Tennessee...we're have temps in the 60's today...tornado weather in the midsouth!!!

  12. Oh My Goodness that's amazing (and scary, too). Hope Mother Nature is done with the arranging new landscaping.

    The weather just ain't what she used to be.

  15. i know some of the shoreline has been destroyed but it is still beautiful to me. i think i would love to live in nova scotia. maybe in my next life... :) sophie, may you have many good moments in your perfect little part of the world...

  16. What a beautiful and ever-changing place you live. I love seeing your photos of the ocean and beach in the winter, and seeing how the storms shape them.
