Bench Beside the Ocean

Bench Beside the Ocean

a bench beside the ocean in the summer

After the weather we have had over the last few days, I am just dreaming of summer - and spending some time in this bench beside the ocean.

The worst wind storm we have ever had made a total disaster of our back yard.

Hundreds of sticks and branches everywhere.

The roof took some mighty blows and has the bruises to show for it.

Too nervous to go to bed last night - thoughts of being pierced with tree spikes kept me jumping up every time the fierce gusts threw them on the roof.

No power, so sitting by candlelight until they subsided was the only option.

March is certainly coming in like a lion this year!


  1. Kathy hope all works out with the weather. We been hit with the snow, and it is not going away. But no winds here luckily, and me too waiting for spring 'impatiently' lol. Anna :)

  2. We got dumped with about a foot of snow on top of the foot we already had. However, I live in a suburb of Buffalo, so you gotta kinda expect it. Doesn't mean I like it, thought !!!! I await for spring!

  3. Ouch, too bad about the weather Kathy, hope it clears up for you. I rather like the power going out sometimes, nice and quiet, love the image.

  4. I know it's scary to be in the middle of a storm but there is something cool about it too in my opinion. I kinda envy you there, sounds like an exciting night :-)

    Cupboard Creatures!
