Ignorance is bliss

By moiral
Afternoon all. A windy day last week took me to the coast looking for some big waves. Tend not to watch much telly, so had no idea that there was a tidal surge on Grin. I just thought this was an unusually high tide, and also thought the waves weren't much to write home about! Thanks for C&Cs on last upload.

Looks very colourful, and quite peaceful, too, Moira! Unlike here on our east coast, where the sea came over onto the roads and swamped shops and other buildings Sad
