The day Irene came ashore I took 204 images and had some leftovers good enough to post. As the storm departed it gave way to a deep blue sky and took with it the humidity.
And please remember, I took the storm photos with a 300mm zoom lens and I further enlarged most after download. At no time was I close to the reach of the mighty ocean, but I hope they give you a sense of being in the middle of it all.

Now there's a classic!
"Thomas E. Lannon" sneaks behind Ten Pound Island.
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
