"Surf's UP!" In our front yard!

We have been having huge waves for the last two weeks, and have even attracted a surfer or two.  They don't like our area much in that we don't have waves that break left or right--ours just rise out of  the ocean and crash down all at once!  And that ensures a quick ride straight to the sandy bottom!

It is hard to take photos to show how big waves are without a point of reference.  In this next shot, the hole you see could swallow a diesel truck!


Here's a shot with a lonely surfer looking...


I was taking double shots that day--here is the next second!

 That little bit of yellow you see in the middle, is his surfboard--no big ride here.


However, he did catch a few waves later and the day before...take a look...




Last year at this time, these huge waves took out our fence...this year, the waves have deposited another two feet of sand in front our our sea wall.  We are hoping that Mama Natura will continue to smile on us...
