As promised, some pictures of the unusual surf conditions we are experiencing this year.
Commuters In For A Rough Ride
The surfers were enjoying themselves.
Waiting For The Big One
You can see how high the waves are, and how far out from shore they are breaking. Most unusual.
Fly Little Birdie, Fly Away Home
The local fishermen were not deterred, however.
Here Fishie Fishie Fishie
And their hard work seemed to be paying off.
Proudly Displaying The Morning's Catch
I have never seen them catching fish like this in all the years I have been coming here. I believe these are mojarra tilapia, which would make for some very good eating.
My friend Chris is coming in from Minneapolis today and I expect he will be ready for some warm weather. I have been watching the storm system sweeping the eastern seaboard and it looks like New York City is getting hit this time around. Several airlines including Jet Blue and Continental have cancelled all of their flights and, of course, there are major delays with the flights that are still operating. They are running extra trains out of Manhattan starting at noon to allow people to get out of town with a minimum of fuss. I think this might last for several days.
I am glad I am here.
