Bill passes Point Judith

First, this video, which I did not take, but found online. We were very nearby, though, when it was filmed. This is at Harbor of Refuge, which was evacuated and closed about half an hour after we arrived at Pt. Judith. From the parking lot of the Pt. Judith Lighthouse, we could plainly see these same waves a quarter of a mile to our southwest, beyond the intervening salt marsh.

This is the video clip I got, maybe half an hour after the above clip was filmed. The sun was almost down. The view is to the east (above, it was to the southwest). The point was taking much of the punch out of the waves, so what we saw north of the lighthouse was considerably less dramatic than the waves over-topping the jetty at Harbor of Refuge (which wasn't much of a refuge last night).

And now, the still photographs (behind the cut):
