Foolish lady !

By mashwood10
The morning in Funchal,Madeira, was very sunny, but the sea was evil !!! This particular morning our lovely hotel in the most beautiful position was flooded. Fortunately not in the reception area but in the sun- bathing and pool area ( indoor pool too) was full of remnants of palm leaves, sea weed and rocks. It was heartbreaking to see this, but importantly everyone was fine, except for the poor staff !!! We decided to walk up the hill to the local area where they sunbathe on the flats below and the damage too was staggering. Obviously the local people lost their lovely sunbathing area. They were so upset - of course they were. I took this image the day before.

Gosh, you have captured the explosive power of the sea here so well, Pam: that brave or foolish lady looks about to get a sudden drenching.
Well timed shot.

Superb timing - amazing wave.
Sorry the sea caused so much devastation.
Was that unusual in Maderia?
