Went down to the beach this afternoon for a long walk in the North wind. After a few blocks it felt like the windchill was in the teens. I knew I couldn't make it very far, so I turned around and went into Tully's for a hot coffee. Then headed west and around the Point to the south beach which was protected and in the sun. Sat on a rock and talked on the phone to my girlfriend in Boston (since 4th grade!) for nearly an hour. Oooooo......I'm so spoiled.

I normally don't spend an entire Saturday afternoon at the beach, but I couldn't resist today. Such gorgeous sunshine, wild wind and awesome white caps! I thrive on wild wind and water. The South side of Alki Point was warm and calm (lowest photo). All the wild action was on the North side of the Point. My understanding is that the wind was shooting straight down from Canada's Fraser River Valley.
