A beautiful, windy day on the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Waves captured just east of the Ogden Pt breakwater.

Waves captured just east of the Ogden Pt breakwater.

The wind picked up this afternoon and whipped the Strait into a mild frenzy.

Quite a few cars along Dallas Rd got completely soaked. I can’t believe people would park there, when the salty waves were washing onto the street; but there ya go.

Some folks walking along the sidewalk and out on the breakwater got pretty much drenched too. Quite a surprise, I expect. You run to miss one wave just to meet another, as it crashes over you head-on. I stuck to the high ground, but still got misted once or twice. Even though you think you’re invincible, nature will get you one way or another 😉

I’ve seen pictures of Dallas Rd. in a windstorm before, but I don’t think I’ve actually been down there during one. Quite exciting.

Definitely had to wipe the spray off my camera when I got home today.
