Here are some pix from Delray Beach on Friday evening in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Sorry about the noise in the photos, I got to the beach pretty late and ran out of light. It was beautiful out there…

The waves were still coming in the wake of Hurricane Irene.

Two Waves Collide

A wave collision.

I’m hanging on to the hope for a miracle for all those in the path of Hurricane Irene. Be safe! Come to Florida. Hurricane Irene brought some incredible surf to Delray Beach, Florida. We don’t see surf of this magnitude very much, so this is unique and beautiful. Sadly many sea turtle eggs and hatchlings were destroyed, and we’ve lost a good portion of our beach.

Although beautiful from this vantage point, I know what a hurricane can do physically and psychologically. May all be safe as Hurricane Irene unleashes her wrath. I’m hoping for a miracle! Please, everyone, respect the power of nature.
