I suppose it's left over turbulence from Alberto. Yesterday was fairly mild and calm....until about dinner time. Then the wind whipped up. Doors were banging back & forth, trees were swaying, gusts blew through the open windows and rattled dishes.
By bedtime the weather had moderated, leaving behind a cool, refreshing breeze. We slept with all the windows open, a pleasant reminder of how wonderful island life so often is.
Today at the beach Lou Ann & I took a plunge in the ocean, but the waves were big & powerful. After a good pummeling, we retreated to the dunes and enjoyed the surf from a more comfortable distance.
