Stormy Weather

This was a day for hot chocolate (with rum) and comfort foods – not that it’s cold.  The winds are howling, blowing, sending rain. A lot of rain.

I love fall, most of you know that.  This is a very welcome event, as today the first, big storm of the season started.  It is widespread and it seems, dare I say it, that we are among the very lucky for not having any power problems.

These first couple or so were taken at the Elberta outlook. The Frankfort lighthouse is on the right

This picture was taken down below the Elberta lookout, right by the old Lifesaving Station

All these pictures and about 35 more are in the collection down below.  Click on each of them to see them better.

Wasn’t that amazing?

The Elberta Waterfront Park

There are some interesting things to be seen. I have no idea what some of them are but, if I could, I’d take them and put them in the backyard. Here, look for yourself

First, the refurbished Lifesaving Station. I took that picture from the porch of the Trick Dog Gallery, which is not open for business yet.

The Lifesaving Station can be rented for events like weddings and family reunions.  There’s a beautiful kitchen for catering

Things sticking out of the ground – that could hurt if anyone is strolling through the area in the dark 😉

This contraption is a leftover from the times when the car ferry was still in business. It was used to unload cars?

What do you say to that?  Pretty nice for the first day of spring, huh?
