Theme: Isolation and SOOC

Drove down to Bayshore to view the sand damage from our recent “hurricane force” wind storm. There is sand everywhere, and that’s saying something since Bayshore is built on a sand spit. Still, it’s amazing to view. The 2 lane street is now 1 lane in most spots, and sometimes barely that; driving over the sand is a bit like driving over fresh snow as it crunched under our tires and the car slipped in places. As we drove around we could see the sand swirling on the breeze and landing someplace new, creating another mini-dune.

These photos were all taken from inside the car as the sand was too high and close to the car to even consider getting out in most spots.

SOOC: photos were cropped, sig added, but no retouching, no adjustments for my habit of tipping my camera to one side, etc. What you see is what I snapped.

A close up of the mailboxes is here.

This map shows where we were down in the tip.

  1. What an incredible sight . . . so much sand . . . how will that ever be cleaned up?

  2. Never thought it would be like that….some tidy up job there

  3. wow – and unlike snow it won’t melt away – seems like some serious shoveling will be needed here – fascinating series of images – thanks!

  4. When I saw those mailboxes I thought mail delivery was going to be difficult, then I watched the slideshow and was even more amazed, time to get out the bucket and spades.

  5. Yikes! I’d have stayed in the car with my camera too with swirling sand. Hope it didn’t damage much, seems like cars and all sorts of things would get gritty inside.

  6. Top reporting of the whims of Nature.!

  7. Super journalism! Love the slide show!

  9. And I think that getting inundated by snow is bad!

  10. that’s a lot of sand!

  11. This is just hard to imagine…..but your pictures make it all too real! When I first saw the pictures of the mailboxes, I thought I was looking at snow drifts!

  12. Slideshow adds a nice effect to the presentation. How postapocalyptic this looks! Wow. I didn’t even hear about this.

    That’s a great slide show and I love how you added the map! Amazing the power of nature!

  14. That’s why you don’t live in Waldport!! Unless you like sand in your house.
