Babess & Fainjin are impressed by the “sea storm”

The sea is rough, and full of shredded kelp. The sand is covered in kelp too. Where the seawall is storm-damaged from earlier this year, debris has washed across the road – just a little, not dangerous. The sea is roaring rhythmically, crashing on rocks & sucking at the sand. The wind is chill, but the sun is fierce too, I can feel it burn. I don’t think we can stay here as long as I’d like.

But it’s rather like finding yourself unexpectedly in the middle of a poem.

    Hi! This brief post IS rather poetic.
    And, I wish I were there, as the weather report predicts a high in the mid-teens later this week. If my math is correct, this would be around minus 9 Celsius.
    In the DC area, this is bitter cold. Odd winter this year!

      Brrr, that would be bitter cold here too! I don’t think we even got a frost last winter. Mind, this summer hasn’t been all that glorious either. Our climate is much milder than yours, rather like a perpetual Maryland spring with the odd fall storm thrown in for interest – but much more wind than you are used to 🙂 Our summers are coolish (max high 20s C) and the winters are warmish (hardly ever drop below freezing) by most standards I think.
