This was an incredibly fast moving storm which very efficiently soaked everything. There was so much wind, there really wasn't anywhere I could stash my gear to keep it dry. So, this particular storm required a dash from the end of the pier to the car with my camera bag. I was soaked, but I managed to keep most of my stuff relatively dry.
Within 25 minutes of that storm. This is what I got to see. :-) It was worth it. I also lost exactly ONE flip flop that night. I won't lie, I'd rather lose both flipflops than just lose one. Losing one just makes you feel dumb the whole way home which you walk crooked. (Yes, I did wear my ONE flipflop home.)
