Saturday

 I took the dogs down to the garden and could hear an unusual noise, couldn't think what it was until I looked out of the window and could see the lines of waves rolling in and it was a very high tide again - the waves were slamming into the cliffs. I walked up to Trebarvah to check that our visitors had arrived and although it was drizzling lightly I carried on towards the beach as the surf was up and it was looking wonderful down there
 Taken from the lane that leads from Trebarvah to the car park

The massive amount of rain that came last Saturday has washed this bank down onto the road


Superb waves
Oops !
I called in to The Cabin Beach Cafe  for a coffee and drooled over this display
Especially the Valentine Special - Meringue, cream, Pistachio and chocolate hearts Phew ! 
They have moved some of the tables into the garden next door
Down onto the beach we went as I wanted to take a look at the damage to the cliffs
The rainwater still pouring down out of the village drain
Some really bad slips
Wooster and Tilly were very interested 
Water was pouring out of both the old mine addits





One of the best waves as I was walking back up the fields towards home

We knew there would still be some beach and there were still plenty of surfers, so we walked back down  there
 We were keeping an eye on this fisherman out on the rocks in this big swell and an incoming tide
Very dramatic sky, but it was nice and dry

A little patch of sun
 We met Jennifer and her lovely band of Cocker Spaniels


Wooster wasn't too sure about this little 6 month old puppy - what a plonker !
 Just look at his face ! 

Time to gather up the dogs 
 He was still there and just look how much higher the water is Hmm !
Looking very dark - it did rain later on

    1. Really enjoying the days with no rain - hoping that the mud will dry up a bit, although the forecast is for more rain on Wednesday ! Wooster has had a great day today (Monday) - we've walked around 7 miles, so we'll all sleep well tonight ! Sue
