A Storm Brewing

After nine straight days of sunshine in the high 70 and low 80 degrees, the warm spell has broken and a winter storm is moving down the coast. There have been high surf warnings the past few days, but the size of the waves never matched the hyperbole of the newscasters. Oddly, the waves are being generated by a storm near Hawaii, while our rain is moving in from the north.

We walked on the beach early, while the sky was still colored by the sunrise. It was all the more pleasurable, as my mom came along.

I do love a storm at sea...although I would have been very happy with temps in the 70's-80's!
