Irene blows away…

August 30, 2011

We were so lucky here in midcoast Maine.  We prepared for the worst, taking down our hanging plants and bird feeders.

Sunflowers too heavy to move

Last minute snacking...

After moving the impatiens...

The ocean started off in its normal state…

A few white caps

The waves are still roiled from last rain storm

Tide poools

 Then came the wind and the seas came alive…

The wind was fierce

High winds pushing rising tide sending spray aloft!

Wave action

And then…

The eye approaches

The eye moves over

The eye closes

 Then the fun really began!
