Here in my part of Wales the winter storms have battered our coast lines. I would love to go and see the waves at their best crashing over the seafront onto the promenade where we often walk. But that is a dangerous thing to do as well as it is cold and wet. I hate driving in the wet weather. So I can only catch up by going on the internet, to our local newspaper and look at all the destruction caused.
This is the photo of Caswell Bay. The cafe’ where we sit outside, enjoying the cuppa and watching the beach, has been damaged severely and the owner says it will be quite a while before he is up and running again. usually on New Years Day I take Spotty down to Caswell and we have a ‘winter’ paddle in the sea. This year the weather was very wet and we stayed indoors.
We often walk along here in Swansea bay. it is only a ten minute walk from my sons’ flat.
I expect by the time one walks again the clearing up will have begun.
This shows the water that comes from the sea to Swansea Marina where all the boats are situated. A popular walk with after Sunday dinner. We either go this way or come back and inevitably call in at Sainsbury.
Finally these are the sand dunes which look to me as though they have fallen away. In Spring and Summer a great variety of wild flowers grow. In the Winter dogs are not allowed on the beach and so our walk is through the sand-dunes.
