Hurricane Bill

Smith Point is one of the closest beaches for us, but we always have to keep an eye on kids, because waves are unpredictable.
Last week-end the beach was closed, because Hurricane Bill was reaching this part of the country, not really causing winds or thunderstorms, but higher waves than usual.
Well, it might not have been Surfers Paradise but it was impressive: waves rolling like cannoli and then sucking part of the beach away - I don't know if we can talk of inches of sand missing from Fire Island but you could feel the power of those waves just looking at them.
