Kennebunk Beach, ME (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: You can see the wet line on the side of the home that indicates where the waves reached during the height of the tide. Now, two hours later, the emergency vehicles have pulled back somewhat, and are allowing cars onto either end of the stretch of beaches. The middle beach, full of rocks, which the waves cast onto the roadway, is still closed at this time.

There are perhaps reasons to defy nature, but nature is stronger, and sooner or later it will win.

Don't think homes should be allowed to be built so close to the shore, sooner or later it will be destroyed! Great shot Wilma, Congratulations!

A beach side home soaked by waves.
Unfortunately, that is the future.
Very significant image!
Stay safe and dry, but thank you so much for sharing these images with us.

good one Wilma..yet ANOTHER reason why I think I always passed on opportunities to own "ocean front" property..LOL!! ...unless you've got very "deep pockets" and don't care what Mother Nature throws at you that is..hopefully this is the last big storm to come through this Winter..we all need a bit of "downtime" from all these "Storms of the Century"..

This does happen quite a few times each winter, Eileen. Guess that is why it is a summer home, although a hurricane will bring similar high waves, too, of course. Thanks for looking, and stay safe with your snows, too!

Whoa! That is crazy!
Do the waves regularly hit that far up onto that home? They must keep it tightly buttoned-up!
AC congrats!
