Breezy, an Understatement!


After a long day in the city with a
~~~ park walk ~~~
~~~ lunch at a cool diner ~~~
~~~ coffee at 'bucks ~~~~
~~~ 2 'Sally Ann' stops ~~~
Ron promised to take me for another walk
at Stony Beach!


I was certainly OK with this decision
because there are sniffy discoveries here
and
I know this first hand!


 The waves kept rolling in
one after another
because we had a nor'easter
go by last evening... 


which always whips up the surf
churning and agitating it 
beyond the normal surf turbulence.


The intensity of wind
was evident
with the crest of the waves
being lifted and dragged
quite far behind the wave.


I felt all topsy turvy
standing on this hillside
which seems kinda wonky in this picture.
I almost lost my balance!


No wonder I was a bit off balance
after realizing how high up 
I was.


Don't worry!
I am very careful 
walking along this path.
~~~
I wanted you to see the beach behind me across the water
in this video
 from last year at this time.
Quite a difference, don't you think!


It's when the edge becomes  more sheer
and eroded then I step far back...


and spend more time
checking out the secret woods
that always intrigues me
when I visit this place.

Come Back and see my woods!

  1. Sophie, great adventures on your day out. " Sally Ann", had to Google that, we have them here in NZ too!! Lovely pics as always, yes the cliff is quite high, you need to be very careful at the edge. Cheers from Jean

    1. Hi JeanDoodle!

      Sorry I wasn't more obvious with the Salvation Army(Sally Ann). We frequent about 6 establishments in our city and find amazing deals for our new adventure Mid-Century Maniac, our name we use to sell 1950's '60's '70's things. We've been collecting for over 20+ years so have a basement full. Time to unload ~~~ now that's an understatement!
      Our last walk yesterday was sort of tricky because of the wind but the waves just made everything magical.

      Ron and Sophie here!

  2. What a lovely day you had Sophie. I was worried about the edge though, I wanted to shout out 'be careful Sophie'!!

    1. I probably wouldn't have heard you, Ann! The wind was so forceful and unrelenting. When I discovered my magical woods I then could hear better!

  3. That is a very stony beach, Annie's beach is just pebbly in comparison!
    Do be careful Sophie, we worry about you.
    Yes, what a difference from this time last year, so peaceful then.

    1. Yes, the difference is quite remarkable. So wishing for a peaceful morning walk like that one in the video!

      Give Annie a big hug for us and tell her I would prefer tiny pebbles over these mid-size cobbles.

      Cheers!

    1. Sophie has a knack (like most doggies I'm sure) to twist and turn her face and with the long floppy ears ~~~ it all just becomes comical ~~~ add the wind and there you have it ~~~ Kooky!

  5. Love your windy photo, Sophie. You look like you'll blow away.

    Better keep a tight grip on Mr O, he definitely will blow away.

    1. NO letting go of Mr. Orangie!

      HOWEVER ~~~ I did drop it once as we hung over the edge taking pictures. Mr. O started to roll DOWN but Ron caught it between his toe and branch ~~~ heart pounding ~~~ he didn't know if he could reach it or not because he had the camera in one hand and was almost hanging over an edge. I started laughing, but I don't thinking he was impressed. Nothing worse than watching a ball bounce 100's of feet/meters down a muddy cliff to the depths below ~~~ I would have jumped after it. I guess that's why Ron wasn't smiling when I giggled!

      Sophie 'still alive as I type' Doodle here!

    1. Ron loves taking me to these places, mainly because they are close and the changeable weather always provides great photography moments!

      Cheers!

  7. Brilliant photos as always Ron. I can almost feel those clouds scudding by in the wind! Careful by the cliff now Sophie!

    1. Love that word, Craig ~~ scudding ~~ will use that for sure! Never to old to learn a new word!

      My next post will show you what's around the corner from the trees on Sophie's right (the picture's left).

      Have a great Sunday!

    1. Choosing the "perfect" picture was difficult Debra because everywhere we turned ~~ well ~~~~~~~~~!
      If you look closely on the horizon, just a speck but it's a container ship heading into Halifax Harbour!

  9. Walking in wind like that is sometimes hard and COLD this time of year, but it sure makes big waves! We had a lot of wind here last night. Hopefully it'll tame down a bit before we set off on our walk.

    1. Yes, I agree Sage! The cold spring winds are tricky because you look outside, see teh sunny bright blue skies and bam ~~~ fr-fr-fr-freezing chilly winds.

      Enjoy your walk ~~~ maybe get all bundled up and take the layers off one by one as the temps rise!

  13. Beautiful photos of an amazing day! I'm not sure which picture I like best but #4 and #7 really caught my eye. You truly get a feel of the wind and its effect on the waves. Just be careful, Sophie! And keep an eye on Ron, too.

    1. #7 has been mentioned twice now ~~~ that's cool!

      I had so many more pictures and I want to show everyone what was on the other side of the point but the trip to the city had to be posted.

      I'll figure out something!

  14. It was breezy here today too, and I could feel the direction of the wind had changed, it feels warmer. Spring has come, and I'll bet it'll be to you before you know it!

    I hope you and your Dad's had a great day!!

    1. YOU ARE RIGHT ~~~ IT'S WARMER ~~~ spring is creeping in again ~~~ I'm holding on tight because the weather forecast on the big ol' TV says super cold on the weekend.

      It's got to be a big lie!

  15. What a difference, Sophie! Last year's video was not only serene, peaceful, and calming; it was hypnotic! Just gorgeous! And today's pics were beautiful. I too like scudding clouds and waves. Hope all is well with you!
