We were in the middle of a wind storm with gusts up to 90 KM/hr so I headed down to English Bay
As I was walking on the beach it felt as if I were in the middle of a sandstorm as sand was getting everywhere, onto my camera and into my eyes. It was a good thing I decided not to ride my bike, otherwise I may have been blown flat on my side.
Recently I had been looking at photos from Door County posted by Martha near Sturgeon/Green Bay of shoreline ice. We don't have shoreline ice around here. It is not cold enough, nor does the water stay still for long
With the wind comes rough wave action, as you can see. The wind comes from the ocean and causes all kinds of problems with our ferry system, and also power outages due to downed power lines
It was really quite chilly today, around 7°c, as I had to wear my toque and zip up my jacket. The wind was just howling. English Bay, being more or less protected by the open ocean is usually calm, but today it looks angry
Even though I had headware on, my ears were getting cold so while I like to watch the waves, I didn't sit very long and shortly headed back to the warmth of my car. There weren't that many people out today and even though we all have them, it was almost like they hadn't seen feet before as I caught a few people staring at me
Just before I left, I saw a solitary cyclist sitting there enjoying the scene
Perhaps you can feel the wind in this short video:
