After the storm

A couple of nights ago we had the first of the Winter storms. A roof was blow off one block of flats in the town. Our tiles stayed on but it was a noisy night. Yesterday I had a walk down to the front to have a look at the aftermath. Here are some of the picture:

The prom is covered in shingle. The cleanup begins.

The beach’s profile is transformed. Thousands of tons of shingle and sand have shifted.

This was a mild storm. I ‘look forward’ to a truly dramatic Winter effort. Reading the forecast, we might not have to wait for long.
