Waiting for Irene!

I could smell something was a brewin' in the air!
  This is what I could see to my right 
(the 2 pictures below)
greyness and intense winds
(notice the windsurfer on Conrad's Beach)
 ...nothing deters a windsurfer, except no wind...

  and this is what I could see to my left
and over the cliff
 The wind was gusting high on the slopes.
This is when you have to be super careful with your footing
because of erosion and loose overhangs.
 Jim loves leaning into the wind to see if it braces him.
All I can say is...get me up this hill and out of the way of this crazy man!
 Irene's surf kept rolling in and with the new moon tonight
the water should reach super high levels.
 This view can give you a more dramatic wave angle.

The darkness in the sky is Irene which appears to be quite far off in the distance.
We appear to be on the edge of her wrath.
 Well, I better get up the slope. 
Check out who was down the slope looking up at me!

More pictures!
Am I surprised!
Back atcha buddy!
Winky Wink!


  1. Wow! Really cool photos! I love the one of Jim leaning into the wind.
    You all stay safe. It will be interesting to see how Irene rearranges your beaches. Maybe she'll push up a lot of sea glass!

  2. Cannot believe that wind surfer was out there. I heard a surfer died trying to surf. Fools everywhere, I guess. Those seas are looking mighty rough!

    I hope you don't have any problems with Irene!

  3. Sophie,
    I think you like your "papa"razzi!

    Beautiful pictures! We hope Irene was just a rain shower for you!

  4. Oooooo Sophie, don't you and Mr Orangy go in that's dangerous....but magnificent.

    XXXOOODaisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. Hello dear friend!
    We can see that you still very beautiful! =)

  7. Your pictures were amazing as always! I sure hope that you weathered the storm okay!!

  8. Wouldn't it be great if that's all it was, some wind. It'd almost be fun. We're rootin' fir ya!

  9. Sophie, we hope you and your dads are warm and cozy as Ms. Irene blows through. I'd say 'stay dry' but you seem to love being wet or dry. Well, stay safe!!


  10. hope that darn Irene goes some place else
    Benny & Lily

  11. Oh Sophie
    It looks so stormy and scary!
    I see your ears blowing in the wind.. and the big wind surges trying to blow you dad over!
    That wind surfer,,, is silly.
    He should not be messing with mother nature...
    well I am glad you weren't!


    ...absolutely SPECTACULAR "stormyscenes"...and truly SPECTACULAR "windypics"!!!!

    What a BEAUTY you are with your golden curls in the strong seawind....WAOAAW!!!!!

    This beautiful documentation tells how mch fun you three guys have...!!!!

    ciao ciao laccaille & elvira

    post scriptum: hoping very much Irene makes a big turn around you and blows off in the faaaar sky....!

  13. Keep safe!
    My power just came back on after a 24 hour vacation.

  14. They are such good shots, I can almost feel the drama in the air as the storm approaches.
    That first shot of Sophie is wonderful!

  15. Wasn't it fun to be out there, in the wind, with the big surf? Those are great pictures, and I'm very glad that you are just on the edge of Irene. She may have only been a cat 1, but she was a very mean one.

  16. There's nothing more magnificent that the fury of a storm--as long as you are safe from it.

  17. Spectacular photos! I could feel the fury of Irene off in the distance. The shiny sea with the dark sky behind it was impressive. Windsurfers! Wow!

    Sophie - the Pupparazi are getting out of control, aren't they?
