    This is our main and only rail link down to Devon and Cornwall – or should I say was

    You are cut off! It’s awful. Perhaps the money promised for the High Speed rail link from London to the north would be better spent rescuing a rail service for Devon and Cornwall.

    Is your path up to the watch tower safe?

    Krisaby. It was wet and slippery last Friday but we were careful and had trenching poles and boots today the weather knocked out the weather station and the two am watch keepers who are both very experienced said that they had never seen conditions like it. 200 feet up and the sea spray overtopped the lookout !!!

    My goodness. Please take care Ivybags. Does the lookout have to be manned 24 hrs?

    Golly! Be VERY careful Ivybags! 😕

    This is our local beach front restaurant. We are not at home at the moment, but our house is about 150 feet above this bay.

    Note the boarded up windows, which had been knocked out by the last big storm. High tides normally reach to the foot of the wall below the beach huts. The boarded up beach hut is the one used by the RNLI lifeguards in summer.

    That’s right Offcuts. We sewed in the little garden where this was filmed from. The weather was quite a bit better then.

    Been away & found a photo – I think the roof to Offcuts’ right is the one with waves breaking over it.

    Was that 2009 Offcuts?

    Oooh yes, though in your photo we’re in the restaurant of the pub a little further up the hill from the beach. 😀

    Ivybags – it is quite a challenge this coast watch that you do. What a brilliant and unselfish set of people you are. I do love the power of a rough sea – but not THAT rough!
    I love the photos of the coastal morsbaggers and those awesome views. The news of the storms is far more disturbing when you know people who are living in the midst of it.
    Is it a comfort for you to know that here in Essex (it is still raining but not like you have) we have crocuses out in the garden – and yesterday a little iris popped out!
