Mother Ann Cottage

Mother Ann Rock is a formation at the foot of Eastern Point Light. It gets its name from the face that is in a reclined position, looking out over the ocean.

If you go and visit the lighthouse, you will also see Mother Ann Cottage.This is what the scene looked light Sunday afternoon. There were still six foot waves coming in, but not as spectacular as Saturday.

Note that the water in the foreground only floods during a significant storm. This was the scene Saturday morning after the storm had already cleared out!

A word of warning. I took these wave shots from a distance. Note that in the lawn you will see two big rocks. They were not there the last time I visited the area. These waves are not something you want to fool with. In this surge, I saw waves braking over the entire wall. The vantage point where I’ve taken many photos from during other storms was a deathtrap on Saturday. Obviously, I use telephoto lenses. I survey the scene before I start taking pictures.  Note that the garage to the right has been damaged (again).
