Storm Frank - time to play!

By brian1208
We are missing the worst of Frank but our local Bournemouth Echo website is full of dire warnings about flooding, danger to pedestrians, closed piers etc.

In the meantime, my loony friends who frequent our local Avon Beach are doing what comes naturally and having a great time playing with the wind and surf Smile

I had to depart before I planned as I got "Wave-bombed", hearing a dragging noise that sounded like one of the parked windsurf planks coming for me I turned but they were still OK. I turned back to the sea just in time to see a massive wave breaking on the shore, the spray from which covered me and the camera from head to toe (this after I had provided a tuition session for my camera club in which I emphasised the need to be conscious of this and other hazards when shooting water-sport action off the beach! Blush )

Both the camera & I are now clean and dry again Smile
