Yes, Ike was a bad one indeed! This is a great shot though and I do hope the beach will look like this again soon!

Nice capture. I'm sure it looks very different after Ike.

I saw your post earlier today. It reminded me of our trip out there earlier this year around Memorial Day weekend. We were glad to see the roads were completed but shocked at the devastation.

I saw your post earlier today. It reminded me of our trip out there earlier this year. It was just before Memorial Day weekend. We were glad to see the roads were open. We were shocked at the devastation.

Fabulous view of your patch of the sky for Sky Watch Friday. Having lived through the no name and some other big storms on the east coast appreciate it takes a long time to rebuild.

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea! Very nice Troy. I did enlarge it for the best effect! I can feel those waves rolling over me!

I've heard a lot of bad stories about Ike from friends in the area. Glade you (and they) got through it safely and hope for a quick recovery of the earth and the people.
