Caught on film, a Star Island storm

So, I’ve been remiss in posting these photos from June 17. But, as we all know, the weather on Star Island can be pretty variable (no it doesn’t always rain every day as we are currently experiencing). In the span of 30 minutes on this bright sunny day, a storm blew in and out of the Isles of Shoals so quickly that it caught us all by surprise.

Well, nearly. A few quick acting Pels made sure the Island’s Zodiac (inflatable boat) that broke loose from our dock was quickly secured while others had the hotel windows shut before the storm hit. No serious damage was done to the Island despite winds that blew in excess of 60 mph and driving rains that joined it shortly after.

A view of it over Smuttynose Island with rains falling.

The view over Appledore of it's approach as it brings rains.

The view over Appledore of it’s approach as a very well-defined edge.

A view of the rain streaking the lab.

Later rains that blew in on its tail-end streaking the lab.
