That's not necessarily unusual at this time of year in Bodega Bay (sometimes known as "Blow-dega Bay").
Yesterday northwest winds were blowing over 25 knots (30 mph) with higher gusts.
The wind was so strong that it made us wonder how far you could lean into it?
Eric decided to give it a try:
I know it's hard to gauge the wind speed in this picture, but — Wow! Although the wind only supported Eric at that angle for around 15 seconds, it was impressively strong wind, and I had trouble believing what I was seeing.
Okay, it was very windy, but it wasn't quite that windy. We thought it would be funny to stage a photo like this. Eric was actually leaning against a board that we later removed from the image using PhotoShop. Did we fool anyone?
Happy April Fools' Day!
