Waves and high tide


Caught on video the other night a high tide and storm coming over the harbour wall.  Not a long clip, as we didn't wait about too long...we were filming from the car and watching these waves. There were a lot of people about, but as you will see they were wise enough not to stand in the way of these beauties crashing over the harbour.

    1. We made sure we weren't too close, but at one point there was a huge surge and we moved the car!!

  2. I heard about last week`s storm on the news here with lots of video of high seas and trees blown down. So sad about the people who lost their lives. I remember storms like that in CM, and we would run trying to dodge the spray but inevitable went home soaking wet, cold and salty! Where were you parked when you took that video..... oops my question mark has turned into É

    1. It's been stormy for about a week or so off and on. We were at Ilfracombe Harbour the piece at the end of the pier where the car park is. We parked ourselves just where the sea stopped after it came over, but just after I took this video it really surged over with a huge amount of water about 4ft deep heading for us!....very exciting :)
