Diving and most aquatic activities were pretty much out of the question on the western part of the island this week-end.  The western part is essentially George Town and Seven Mile beach. I saw today some of the largest waves I have ever seen here.  In any case, they are the biggest since the close call of Hurricane Dean that I have seen.

I am just guessing, but probably the passing a few hundred miles away of Hurricane Tomas may have something to do with it.

Here is the wave action at Eden rock.  Those stairs are where you go into the water to snorkel.  None of that happening right now.  The water is all milky anyway.

Here is the main commercial area in George Town, right in front of the stores and restaurants.  These waves were putting water in the street with and made quite a “thud” on impact.

The port dock where all the containers are usually located got quite a beating also.  It was quite a show.

Lastly, the chicken! 🙂  A subject I like to discuss once in a while.  I still find it funny that they roam freely all over the place.  They don’t seem to bother anyone and just “do their thing” of roaming around town.  I had always noticed upon arriving to work in the early morning that the roosters made quite a symphony.   Basically, when I get to the 3rd floor of where I work ( I use an outside staircase), I can always hear what seems like hundreds of roosters from near and afar. It always impressed me … not sure why though.  Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here they are: the morning George Town chicken symphony. Listen carefully, there are a significant number of them that you can hear on the video.  And consider this, what other blog would ever present to you such a random thing.  LOL
