While a high wind warning is in effect starting tonight at midnight and all of the weather sites I looked at said the wind along the coast would be light this afternoon, there were times that it was quite difficult to walk into the wind.

A friend and I walked at Crane Beach today, starting out in a direction that allowed us to have the wind at our backs on the return trip. There were times when the light sand blowing across the surface of the beach almost looked like snow.
