Surf's Up on Peaks Island

Hurricane Bill passed about 200 miles east of us today. It's done nothing but push hot, humid air at us for the last 48 hours. We all kept a pretty close eye on it since Hurricanes due tend to have a mind of their own. Having had two "eyes" pass over my head in my youth, I don't care to ever have that happen again. All we fortunately got was high humidity and high surf this Sunday.
Of course, Islanders turned out in droves to watch the surf action. Swirling, powerful swells descended on us in sets about three minutes apart. The lesson for today was, when the ocean speaks, you had better listen. Our little Whaleback on the backshore seemed to be the best viewing of wave action spilling high into the sun lit sky. Here's a few pics of today's show; enjoy.
