Nor’easter Redux

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, USA

The remains of a sand fence frame the beach at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, USA, following a nor'easter storm in November 2009.

Here are a few more photos from Rehoboth Beach and the neighboring beach community of Dewey Beach, Delaware, in the aftermath of the nor’easter spawned by the remnants of Hurricane Ida in the US mid-Atlantic seaboard. Nancy and I walked the beaches both in the mist and wind as the storm was clearing and then the next day, as the sun emerged.

On the first day the weather was bad. We found a few other visitors surveying the situation, but there were also a number of treasure hunters wielding the modern tools of the trade, seeking finds uncovered or washed up by the preceding three days of pounding surf.

By the second day after the storm, the wind was gone and the sun emerged. As the day warmed, the newly widened beach filled with walkers and beachcombers, and the beach towns returned to normal.

Walkers and beachcombers emerge to explore the widened beach as the sun finally emerges after a nor'easter clears out from Bethany Beach, Delaware, USA.
