Thursday was forecast as a sunny day and a trip to Spurn Head with its groynes and possible lighthouse sunsets would make for some interesting shots. The last time i visited Spurn Head was over 30 years ago and it was time for a return visit because i had heard the winter storms had damaged the spit making it an island for part of the day. I used to drive all the way to the lighthouse but the road has been washed away and is only accessible by the coastguard, eventually nature will do her bit and Spurn head will become an island.
The sea washes over the spit about 1.5 miles before the lighthouse on a daily basis 2 hours before high tide and remains there untill 2 hours after high tide.
Yesterday the High spring tide was at 6pm and the sunset at 3.50pm and its a 1.5 mile walk back to the sea breach mmmmmmmmm.
