El Niño?

At my house the fishermen are my weathermen, when they move their boats, I know to watch for high water. This past week the ocean has been taking sand from in front of the house, it's constantly changing...

All these rocks used to be buried under several feet of sand, it's not that big a deal for us, but I'd think it would be dangerous for the boat guys coming in and out, in the dark especially.

We had a really big rain a couple nights in a row, and today the debris from the River has begun to surface on our beach. At the moment it's just dislodged water hyacinth plants and some bamboo, but from last year, I know there will be much much more.

Some photos from Facebook, to show what the ocean has been doing in other parts of Ecuador and SA...

Monsterous waves on the Coast of Chile

Above is Bahia, below is Crucita

Even tho the weather is warm, it is still Winter, and so these are our "winter storms"...won't really know if it's El Niño til it's over probably...but the bright side, when there has been lots of rain, the sunsets are even more spectacular!

Note the difference in sand in this picture, none of those rocks in the first picture are showing yet.

Well, that's all for now, hope everyone stays safe from their "winter storms", stay tuned...the adventure continues!
