Serious Wind!


After yesterday's post
I thought that maybe
I should show you really
how windy it was
from MacDonald Hill


We whipped up the road to the hill
and I jumped out and ran to the edge.


Down below was the wind surfer
who had too much
and returned to his car.


But for me, 
I Love the Wind
from the left side....


from behind


from the left side and from behind
double whammy effect


forceful enough to blow my tongue
out of my mouth
(told you it was strong)


OK, that's enough


one last sniff on the wind
(I think I smell the U.S.A.)


I'm all re-invigorated now...
watch out here I come!


One last wind blast
with a full 2 ear
up lift.
(my patriotic side coming out if you click 
the pale grey line)


Aahhh!
That was so ticklish...
I tell you standing in the wind
makes you do silly things!

  1. Hello Ron and Sophie,
    Beautiful photos and Sophie I think we can tell you are fascinated by 'where does the wind come from...' Aston would have to be on a lead, as I think he would be a kite very quickly in that wind!!

  5. It really was a windy day for you Miss Sophie.
    Funny thing, we sang the Canada National Anthem around a firepit last night. For reals! We fudged some of the words tho (I thought it was guarded knee haha). Thanks Professional Hockey (that's way we know most of the words!

    1. This is a hoot and a half....we make up words for songs all the time...some of them can't be mentioned here...too funny though! Hey maybe the Canadian Anthem needs some new words! Just sayin'!

  6. Hi Sophie - I like lots of wind to. Sometimes it gets so strong here that I can lean with almost all my weight into the wind like its a pillow. I get very silly and like rushing around the beach pretending I am a seagull!! Lily. xxx

  9. When we have wind like that, the local tv weather folks call it "small dog warnings". Glad you're big enough not to blow away!

    1. How about "medium sized dog warnings" or larger...can you just imagine!

  10. You were smelling the USA, although I thought there was a feeling of chilly Canada when the direction changed! :-)

    1. This was an off-handed geographical pin-pointing of Nova Scotia...because everyone here knows we are the tailpipe of all industrial effluent sent into the atmosphere from the eastern seaboard of 'merica! Our cancer rates are higher than the rest of the country and so is MS....so we live as healthy as possible because....well...it's self-explanatory I guess!
      Hope this wasn't a downer!

  15. Wonderful windy photos! We were in the wind today too but up high in the mountains. It was so windy that we couldn't walk, and we had to head down. I'm glad that you had so much fun!

    1. I imagine your winds were so much more intense...especially if you couldn't walk. I can envision the dogs with 'super flat' ears pasted to the sides of their heads and you with The Runner huddled closely!

  16. Sorry... I was laughing... those were some fun shots!

    (Think if I was going to wind surf I would hang it up too. Whew!

  17. The "2-ear" is so funny!

    I was going to make a snide comment that it probably wasn't a good thing to smell the USA, then I read the comments and found in reality you already know that. How sad!

    1. Yes, I realized after Jim told me some people might take offence to the not-so neighbourliness comment that I should redeem myself.
      Because the northern hemisphere winds blow to the east from the west, many articles have been written and programs on TV such as The Nature of Things and the like have discussed this unfortunate situation that happens to fall upon us. This is one reason why thinking about others and what can happen to them through your own actions has always been forefront for us. We do not live in a vacuum as you know...if you toss out kindness to people you usually receive in like. The same can be said for pollution however tossing it out to the atmosphere does effect others adversely and we only know this too well. We live our lives to the best that we know how and deal with what comes at us. This is what we have grown to accept.
