It’s been warm today. Balmy to say the least. Thirteen degrees Celsius is not at all typical for December in Nova Scotia. Odd weather occurences are becoming more frequent than usual this year, already predicted to be the warmest in Canadian history.
But this afternoon, even news of surfers in Fisherman’s Cove came as a bit of a surprise. I wasn’t able to get out to see the action in Eastern Passage, but I did get a few images of the waves in the Cow Bay area towards Rainbow Haven beach.
The whole sea appeared to be in the process of being stirred up by an invisible hand. Both the number and size of the waves were remarkable.
What was even odder was the number of flies hovering in the air. (You might be able to spot some in the photos). Though I didn’t walk down to the shore, I imagine they would have been swarming in even greater numbers near the seaweed that’s been churned up over the past day.
I hope all the surfers had a great time trying to catch the Big One.
Sybil at Eastern Passage Passage managed to capture surfers in the images she took of today’s waves at Fisherman’s Cove. You can visit her post at Surf’s Up.
