Hold your hat on!



I could have called this post chalk and cheese.. that's the difference in the weather (see yesterday's post) from one day to the next. I mentioned that a storm blew ferociously all through Tuesday night and for most of yesterday, the winds were incroyable! Took these shots along the coast at Trigg Island beach where the wind was so strong it almost blew me off my feet.. exhilarating way to clear the cobwebs:)


Loved watching the dog below dashing left then right before plunging into the water to howl furiously at the waves crashing just beyond his reach. Who know what tomorrow might bring.. in more ways than just the weather these days :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  2. That is some crazy wind. Our weather has been crazy too. Hot and now cold. Wish it would make up its mind.

  4. Your photos certainly give the impression of the power of the wind. It's certainly "blowing a hooley"!

  6. Bet the spider webs survived the storm? How's your tree? Did he survive the storm ?! Be careful, and stay safe!🤗

  8. What an exhilarating post! Our islands have done a good job of flattening the curve, but how and when numbers return is going to tell the tale. Testing before flying! right now we still have 14 day quarantine for all flying in.

  9. It must be funny to see the dog running back and forth. Maybe he was suffering as school children do on a windy Friday afternoon at school where they go crazy. Actually, it is the teachers who suffer.

  10. That is crazy scary wind, Grace! I hope that your new tree survived.
    P.S. - I saw some Teddy bears in a window yesterday. A first for me.

  11. That sounds like some serious winds down there. I'm glad you were able to stay standing and gather these photos. Love the dog.

  12. We here in Idaho had some pretty good wind gust

  13. Whoah! That wind sure looks gusty! But I love the little kids that are seem to enjoy them, I know I would too! Hahaha We've been having 45-51 degree weather here in the past week, yes, in Celsius. And it's been drying not just the plants but our flesh! And we can't go to the beach of course. It's just nice to see photos of the sea that you share and I know Australia has a lot of amazing beaches. I saw some posts from Liam Hemsworth as he went surfing in his hometown near Melabourne. Oh I wish I can be near the sea soon.

  14. Love the pics of the dog enjoying the waves, and the kids are cute too Grace. Glad the howling wind is over, that type of weather scares me.

  15. I am glad we live in a heart of houses and wind or storm unlikely would harm us, Grace.
    In fact, I loved the stormy days at the coasts here in Germany.
    This really stays the coldest May I can remember. Nearly lunch time and still only 9C.

    The doggy is cute :-) And brave, too!

  19. It does look very blustery there, mind you the dog seems happy though.

  20. Marvelous captures. Take care.

  21. I love weather like that. I grew up right by the sea and some of those stormy days were amazing, spray everywhere and strong winds and high tides. Although scary as well as exhilarating.

  22. Your bird action shots were great but these are even greater.
