We had a day of high winds coinciding with a high tide, followed by rain. It started with blue(ish) skies and an angry sea.
Then the skies darkened though by then the tide was going out.
It didn't have the best effect on our beach - before:
What a difference three weeks makes. There is a great deal of head scratching and muttering going on. It may not be Sandy but the beach is no longer sandy, the waves have washed the sand out of the shingle.
