Thank you all for your comments and votes on shadows yesterday, today some images of Sand Bay where our caravan is, this is just across the road from the site, as you can see the weather last Monday was very overcast and it rained very heavy about 7pm, on the horizon is Steep Holm on the left and Flat Holm in the centre, on the right is the south Wales Coast, V2 and V3 I used the Lee Big Stopper, I have also uploaded Cygnet Hospital that is in Sand Bay built in the Art Decor style, one of the inmates there at the moment is Shrien Dewani who they say paid to have his Wife murdered on their honeymoon in Africa, below some info on Sand Bay.
Sand Bay is a strip of coast in North Somerset bordered to the south by Worlebury Hill and to the north by Middle Hope and Sand Point. It lies 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare, and across the Bristol Channel from South Wales. It is adjacent to the village of Kewstoke.
The north end of Sand Bay has become overgrown with spartina grass since the 1950s. This hardy grass was planted to support the banks of a tributary to the Bristol Channel further upstream than Sand Bay. Over the last 20 years the grass has rapidly taken over the north end of the beach and is now beginning to grow in isolated areas of the south end. The grass also began to grow on the beach at Weston-super-Mare, but was removed by the local council.
In the 1980s part of the beach at Sand Bay was raised to prevent flooding by pumping sand from the Bristol Channel up onto the beach. The beach now has two levels, one at the original height near the sea and one bordering the adjacent road at the higher level. The upper beach level has now become covered in grass in many areas (not with the spartina grass – which is found at sea level).
