The Calm… After The Storm!

Yes… calm has returned, for now, to Arklow’s South Beach. I promise, it would have been highly risky to venture during Storm Ophelia where I was standing yesterday morning to take these photos! The storm surge came over the sea defences in places. The photo that’s showing dune grasses was the highest point I stood yesterday. The sea rushed past that spot at times during the storm… submerging the car parks and roads immediately beyond. For now, we can relax a little… apparently for not too long because there’s another Atlantic storm predicted to arrive closer to the weekend. So, we wait for Brian with bated breath…

Thanks for all yesterday’s well wishes! We were inconvenienced at worst with the loss of power. I’m sure many in Durban, South Africa suffered a much worse fate last week during the floods than we in Ireland endured!

    Dit tref my dat julle strande so mooi skoon is na die storm. Ons s’n het gewoonlik ‘n mengelmoes van ou skoene, plastieksakke, plastiekbottels, riete, motorbande … Dis mooi fotos AJ.

    As mens na hierdie fotos kyk is dit amper onmoontlik om te glo so n groot storm is 24 uur vantevore daaroor!
