Hurricane Waters Inspire Yoga

Yesterday, Nathan and I went to Misquamicut Beach for what we thought was going to be a nice sunny day of, well, beaching it up in the sun! However, when we got there, we remembered there was a hurricane out at sea, and it made the waves HUMONGOUS! We still ended up going in the water, though many were too scared to face the waves, but we joined the bunches of surfers who were in all their glory at Misquamicut Beach, Rhode Island.

This is Nathan braving the waves!

We found a nice rock where I could do some Yoga, of course. The sound of the waves crashing was very inspiring.

Later, we took our bikes out and rode them all along Watch Hill and stayed out pretty late. The mist from the ocean was so refreshing as we rode. Here's a photo of Nathan with his bike. He loves this photo! Hahaha

Before we left, we went to some of the calmer areas of water and we met this swan, who was VERY friendly!

The mist coming off the water and the sun setting was so beautiful. It was a BIG difference from seeing and hearing the crashing waters on the ocean side.
So peaceful

And of course I got inspired to do some more Yoga ;)

We ended up biking about 8 miles, it was a good time. Sometimes I wish weekends were longer...hope you all had a great one!
