The following day I visited Caswell Bay Gower. This time my son, girlfriend and Ruby the dog came too.
When we visit this beach we always sit on the patio outside the cafe’ having our cuppa and watching people on the sands.
The day was sunny and calm. We wondered how much damage had been caused.
Having parked the car in the almost empty car park (only 2 other cars) I first went to the toilet. Here I could see on the floor the watermark of the where the water had come in. But fair play, they had cleaned up well. Walking over to the patio and steps leading down to the beach I met the family again. The sun was very strong and shining in such a way I could not take photos.
The beach was strewn with debris and the tide was coming in. The cafe’ closest to the beach had its shutters up and was closed. it had suffered storm damge with all the electrics being blown and the counter as well as the tables and chairs had been thrown right up against the wall with the force of the waves. It will be a while before he can open again.
But the Kiosk at the other end was open and we were able to a cuppa before coming home.
I’m sure by the time summer arrives and the visitors return everything will be back to normal.
