Northerly swells from the Atlantic coast, powered by a large Low in the NW Atlantic were forecast to reach peak heights of 11-12ft on Wednesday, November 9th, 2016 and this made for a lovely display at the Glass Window Bridge  and surrounding cliffs even when they were not quite at the peak height. As expected the temporary concrete barriers (not visible in the photos) were  resting over the edge where they had been tossed.

The first two images here show the contrasting beauty of waves crashing on the east facing Atlantic coast, and the gentle ripples that resulted on the calm west facing coast on Wednesday morning.


The next four images show how the waves were forcing through the opening under the bridge and sending rolling water over the bridge where the barriers should be standing.
