THE FIRST NOR’EASTER – RAINDROPS KEEP FALLIN’ ON MY LENS

Today is the first nor’easter since I moved down in June.  Rain all night and off and on this morning.  My friend, Bob S., had told me about a flag fastened to the last of the boardwalk pilings.  Had to see what it would look like against the stormy surf.

The wind was blowin’ pretty good; the rain was stinging my legs slightly.  Had the cover on the camera but, hey, you can’t cover the lens, right?  So, a few raindrops.  Clone ’em out.

Loved it on the beach, with the wind and flying spray.  Started to leave and had to wait at the Stop sign.

Things on the bay side were a little better … no blowing spume but still foreboding.

The Meerwald’s in town, taking people out onto Little Egg Harbor bay and drumming up interest and, hopefully, contributions.  She was out yesterday:

But I don’t think they’re going to do much business today.
