Windy and Wild

Another windy and wild weekend has come and gone. We went for a walk around the waterfront, it’s always interesting what you’ll see. Some parts of the path we usually take were inaccessible, but I was able to take pictures of what we went to see, from a distance.

There is a little house that’s on the waterfront and abandoned, because I can’t imagine anyone living there. Not sure how the house can still be standing, but it is. Yesterday, winds registered gusts up to 120kms or 75 miles an hour. Apparently at that speed it’s just on the verge of a hurricane…so pretty wild. This is a picture I took from a distance because it was to dangerous to walk our usual route. We would have been swamped or worse been hit by the debris that was being washed right up to the top of the seawall.

In the distance of this picture you can see a cream coloured house with green trim about the center of the picture. You can see the water crashing up on the seawall and the overspray hitting the house. Check the next picture. 

I think if you click on the pictures you’ll get it in a new window and larger.

Easy to see why the house is abandoned, you can barely see it with that wall of water crashing over it. The house next to it, isn’t faring any better. I think the only saving grace for the house next door, is that the little house is breaking the impact that might have otherwise hit them. Crazy.

The people around here come out on these days to watch the event. Sadly, I think the poor house will give way one of these days and I can only imagine the sight that will be.

Poor little house, but to take all this abuse is quite something about how it was built….
