On a beautiful Friday afternoon the sun was shining
but the wind was kicking up a storm!
Earlier in the morning, a storm warning had been put out for all coastal areas.
Water levels rose four feet and more above the HiGh WaTeR lines!
It whipped the salt water into a foam..
which blew over the span of beach and across the road.
Looking up the coastline towards town you could see the waves clear the rock seawall.
A boat was held off-shore waiting out the storm.
Boats in the small-boat harbor were moved up the river or anchored tightly at the dock.
New For Sale signs have appeared around town.
You too could have your own piece of paradise ;-)
for a price!
The repeated storms this summer have really churned the ocean's floor.
A 4.9 Troy ounce nugget was scooped out with a dredge hose
You can find a picture of the nugget on the front page of the Alaska's oldest paper,
That delightful discovery of a huge nugget when you were cleaning out your days work,
might allow you do dream of making your paradise anywhere.....
