A storm blew in over the weekend. After the rain headed inland, I went out to the pier to see the coast...preferably somewhere with railings, because the wind was still dangerously strong.

Waves breaking over the end of a jetty across the way.

Fun fact: I discovered that if the wind is strong enough, it can blow a camera neck strap up and completely off of your head.

Not so fun fact: It was also blowing the tethered lens cap on directly into my face.

I found it kind of amusing that the wind was constant enough to keep this sign almost horizontal the entire time.

Heerman's gull. They're not as common here as western gulls, but I do see them occasionally. This one didn't feel like trying to fly in the wind, which was blowing other seagulls sideways. And in some cases backward.
