Blowing in the wind

Very unsafe to be on the promenade

Too unsafe to be on the promenade

I tried to take some storm photos on Monday (6th) but seem to have been largely defeated, mostly by huge waves breaking over our normal vantage points, by the splashes and spray coating the camera,  and by the fact that I couldn’t stand still in the buffeting wind.  The promenade was dangerous and no-one was fool enough to try it; the cars parked behind the second sea wall had water surging between their wheels; seawater ran down the turfed revetment, across the road, and filled up the car park.

The waves were thick and curdled with rage
