Yesterday was a day of heavy, humid air and some thunder. Overnight, tropical storm Irene arrived but didn’t cause too much damage here in New Brunswick. In fact, Saint John only got 35mm of rain! We woke up to a brilliant, though windy, day. Decided to get out and look at crashing waves … at high tide, the surf certainly would be up. We drove out to the nearest beach — Saints’ Rest, which is only five minutes away. Last storms they put up barricades on the road to prevent people from going there but this time they must have come to the conclusion that barricades weren’t enough … they parked a fire truck across the road. There were oodles of people there, with cameras, discussing with the fire fighters, but they were not allowed to go down there. I got some shots from where I stood, then we drove south. The pictures you’ll see here are mainly from Chance Harbour, NB.
As you can see in one shot, a woman was defying the forces and took a swim!
