Today I want to participate in a wonderful Wednesday Walk. It is a challenge hosted by @ tattoodjay
and I want to joy to this initiative.
We often run without noticing that events, people, days, years pass by us ... We are in a hurry to live, while not having time to enjoy what life offers us. And it is so important to stop for a while, look around and see all that is beautiful that surrounds us!
My Wednesday was the first day after the storm.
Hurricane Gloria came to our coast, and hosted here a couple of days. Schools were closed, streets were flooded, residents were advised not to leave home without special need
We sat at home and watched the Facebook tape, which was filled with photos by eyewitnesses of what was happening.
It was very heavy rain, snow fell in many areas. The wind reached a force of 115m per second, and the waves on the beach reached 8m height.
A lot of damage was on the promenades and beaches. Waves flooded nearby streets and scattered furniture at beach cafes.
By Wednesday morning the wind died down, the waves decreased and the streets dried up. In the morning, municipal services cleared the promenades and beaches and in the evening removed the barriers and opened the walkways
Everywhere along the beach were lintels, pieces from chairs and pieces of street containers. And the boats. Many boats stood far from the water and seemed lonely and abandoned.
But the sun came out and the children were already dragging their parents to the beach to play in the sand and build castles.
A couple of days will pass and there will be no memories left of the hurricane. In addition to photos and eyewitness accounts.
