Big Waves 1-10-17
Tuesday afternoon (1-10-17) my son and I went down to the Edmonds Marina in the hopes of taking more eagle photos like I had taken in the morning. The combination of a seasonal King Tide and high winds produced some large waves that battered the various breakwaters and bulkheads along the Edmonds waterfront. These waves were not as big as those on 11-29-14 that damaged some of the bulkheads, but I thought they were still worth photographing.
1Looking north from Marina Beach.
2-3: The concrete pad at Olympic Beach acts as a landing spot for driftwood. The carcass of a deer was washed up at this location on 1-29-17. Its hide had been removed by the waves and sand.
4: View from the walkway out to the fishing pier.
5-6: Walking out to the newly rebuilt fishing pier. Waves were breaking on the marina's breakwater and spilling inside the marina.
7: My son in the blue Mariners jacket watched the wave action from the protection of one of the new shelters.
8:The owners of these boats are probably thinking that the marina's docking fees are well worth the money.
9-10: The bulkhead to the parking lot near the Senior Center also took a pounding. This bulkhead and the one at the entrance to the marina both had to be repaired immediately after the high waves of 11-29-14.
