On the 27th December we took a trip down to Red Strand and on to Long Strand and Ownahincha to take a look at the stormy conditions. It was very windy and quite a job to hold the camera still enough to take pictures …
It was a wonderful experience, to feel the strength of the wind and to hear the roar of the sea so loud that we had to shout to speak to each other. It was also good to get back to the car and feel safe! Looking back at these now I am reminded of all the verses in the Bible about God sheltering us from the storm, such as in Psalm 46:
God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
