I haven’t had many opportunities to blog lately, which means Island Home Blog has been quiet as of late. I finally had a chance to look at my pictures from a few weeks ago when it was stormy and blustery on the coast.
This was the stormiest weather we have personally ever seen at this spot on the island. The waves were huge and the wind was howling. I managed to only get a small amount of time to take pictures before the sky oped up with rain.
New driftwood dotted the shore, brought in by the waves, giving people the opportunity to create new beach sculptures.
Mist and fog settled in over neighbouring islands creating a lovely atmosphere that we usually only experience in the winter months.
At the side of the beach a boat continues to sit. It has been in this spot every time we have visited this beach for almost 5 years. It is part of the landscape.

Wonderfully dramatic in black and white! That driftwood is huge, there must be some big waves bringing it in.
The waves were wild that day. The slope of the beach mixed with the wave action meant at times it was like a vertical wall of water 5 ft. high before the wave crashed. I have some pictures where you can see small bits of wood just suspended in the water before it crashed. It was quite amazing.
Wow, that must have been extraordinary to watch – and probably very loud too!
