This view is from Trafalgar Park looking at SE corner of Harling Point across a small bay in front of what we call Pebble Beach. These views have been featured in this blog in the past but in markedly different conditions – it is a pretty spectacular difference with the view in my Pebble Beach post from mid-October. This view is from the middle of last weekend’s storm. On the rocks in the distance can be seen a post and part of a fence. The fence is one that I have previously featured – it was a heavily weathered redcedar structure that was slowly blending into the rocks in its lichen covered state. Unfortunately the wind has taken it out. I heard last week that the property that this fence belongs to is now being considered for redevelopment, so I expect that it won’t be replaced for a while, and when it is, it will be something quite different.
I am glad that I took fence photographs in mid-December as it has been a feature of this location for decades. I had planned to take more, but that seems unlikely now. Anyway, click on the link at the beginning of this paragraph and compare the before and after – from tranquil serenity to searing wind.
