A Close Call

The tide was so high as the ocean waves were
being blown in towards the sea wall this afternoon.
We pulled over in the car to watch and as
I rolled down my window to take photos I tried to
protect my camera lens from
a fine mist that was in the air from the distant
sea spray.

I was so lucky, I had just closed the window
after this photo was taken and was looking down on the
floor for the lens cap when a really big wave
hit my window with such great force it nearly shook the car.
I was so fortunate to have closed
the window when I did for I would have been soaked
as well as my precious camera. Whew!

Whoa! thats really scary Nan. We have a spot like that too and when my children were little they LOVED to drive there. (made me nervous).

I'm really glad you had shut your window in time.
