Wind is actually one of my favorite elements. It cools me off when I’m too hot, it blows me away and lets me have fun. Although at times, wind can be destructive (as any element can), it can also be very useful and even create energy!
I remember as a little kid going to one of the far ends on a big cruise ship and being blown away by the wind. I remember I could let go, as if falling down and it would catch me. One of my greatest wind memories.
I also remember as a kid being inside a camping tent with a friend and the wind suddenly blew all three (me, my friend and the tent) away several feet! I think we rolled around and it was actually quite fun. Do you have any wind memories?
I have captured wind a few times across my travels, enjoy!
For miles we could see these giant energy windmills on I-84 along the Columbia River in Oregon.
We got up close one of them in Pendleton, OR.
It was quite windy when we decided to visit Cannon Beach on the coast of Oregon during winter.
Wind is a great friend of sailboats. Can you see Mount Saint Helens in the middle?
The wind was strong at Long Beach, WA and the kites were big, and they were being wrapped around the people; but they managed to get them up and it was great.
I borrowed this convertible VW bug and I, of course, let the roof down and the wind blow my hair.
The Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood, OR has these flags that are flapped by the wind.
And finally, it was definitely hard to take a photo without the wind blowing my hair on the ferry on the way to Victoria, BC.
Which one was your favorite?
