As many of you know we had a major Nor'easter rain storm this past weekend. In our town alone we had over 7" of rain! Yuk!
However, once the clouds cleared Monday night it's been nothing but beautiful outside! Come Tuesday morning I was out and about try to capture some of the mayhem. Not so easy since roads were closed everywhere due to flooding, but at least I was able to get to the beach. Seems I'm always going to the waters edge lately.
This is a view from Rye harbor jetty looking across the way towards Rye Harbor State Park (aka: Ragged Neck). See that big clump of green bushes in front of the boat? That's where I was standing to take the following pictures. I just want you to know I stayed a safe distance away from the waves.
This website gives a beautiful overview of the whole harbor area. You'll find extra pictures of Rye harbor from different angles on the right side of the page.
Alright, so let's head over to the park on the opposite side of the harbor.
As I was leaving I looked back and grabbed a few more shots. I have to say, I do love the ocean, and water in general, but it scares me. Even standing a safe distance away, the power of the waves makes me nervous. I told one guy he should back up because you never know how big the next wave will be. The tide was coming in making the waves more ferocious all the time.
I'm just so thankful that all the rain that fell wasn't snow!
