A stiff breeze

All week the media have been banging on about WINDPOCALPSE so of course I was waiting excitedly for today. Ok so it blew a bit but there was no mass downing of trees or blowing of high sided vehicles into rivers. I did see a sheep stagger a bit but that may have been due to poor hoof conditions underfoot.

So I ran to Witches Point which meant 3 and a half miles into the wind and then the saunter home!

The wind did so some cool stuff however in more subtle ways.

The tide didn’t seem to know if it was in or out ….

The whole beach was covered in an inch of water and foam which was being driven onshore by the wind despite the tide receding, which gave it the surreal appearance of snow which my camera couldnt quite grasp

The waterfall was having issues.  There was plenty of water but no falling.  This was as far as the waster got before being blasted away into spray.

Fuck the weather get out there and run people!

    1. Feeling ok. At the moment it’s a battle between left foot and right knee. They have agreed not to hurt at same time but one will always be having a moan …. I just ignore them now. They’re like old friends

    1. The seagulls didn’t seem to care. I was watching them landing on the cliffs in the gale thinking “how to they do that” They sort of swoop in and then suddenly apply the old wing brakes, go upwards a bit them down onto the ledge.
