Wave Action & Doodle GPS!


Realizing that a nor'easter was skirting our province today 


we happened to visit Eastern Passage 
another of our coastal communities near the city


The wave action was relentless, strong and unforgiving


This shoreline is covered in huge rocks making it difficult to traverse 


and with the onslaught of the waves no one in their right mind wanted to be down there.


This will show you the waves persistent in their crashing and churning of the shoreline 


With the constant deluge of whitecaps and rolling waves on one side of the boardwalk
we decided to seek refuge on the other side out of the force of the wind.


Oh joy ~~~ I remember this grassy section from last summer's visit
and 
 with Mr. Orangie
and use of my Doodle GPS
I am able to  position MacNab's Island to the left
Eastern Passage to the right
and
The City of Halifax in the far distance.

    1. Those benches are dedicated to some people who love this boardwalk and made many friends here. Their names are inscribed on the plaques attached. So lovely!

    1. Yes the rocks are very smooth and slippery when wet ~~~ caution always! Otherwise, they make create garden stones or building blocks for when you are sitting on the beach when it's sunny of course and you want to build something. Very enjoyable!

  9. Yeah the wind blew a ton
    Yesterday under our sun
    The cat watched the leave go
    To and fro
    Of course I don't get to go to that giant litter box known as the beach
    With all that sand and grime I'd need too much bleach

  10. Hi Ron and Sophie,
    I am sure doodle GPS must be quite accurate! Pictures are wonderful and the video so beautiful, the sound of the Ocean would send me asleep in seconds! Have a good weekend.

    1. I'm so jealous ~~~ you are in your garden ~~~ well at least I saw some snowdrops popping through this morning as Sophie zoomed by the bed. I keep telling her to be careful ~~~ not into listening mode at all these days with SPRING approaching. That's OK it's her backyard too.

      Ron

      PS sent you an email about your location..Sophie made me!
