28 August 2011 Windy Day in Western New York
The contrast between yesterday and today was dramatic. The pleasant weather of yesterday became cooler temperatures, high winds and big waves.
Even the gulls were staying on shore.
They look like planes lined up on an aircraft carrier.
It was a tough day for Oak Orchard Lighthouse visitors. Ali looks a bit wind blown. We were doing a multi that required walking to the end of the breakwall.
This is a really small lighthouse and diificult to navigate inside.
The view from the lighthouse is probably much nicer on a sunny day.
The weather stayed grey and windy as we made our way home. We had time for a few quick stops in the Lockport/Niagara Falls area before we made the last bit of the drive home.
