It doesn't rain all the time here in Devon, some days the sun shines between showers.
We make the most of sunny days and take the opportunity to go out.
Yesterday we spent a couple of hours on the beach with Freya.
Freya enjoying her normal pastime of hole digging, she had more sand than normal to hone her skills on this particular beach.
The storms we have had over the last few weeks have damaged sea defenses all along our coastline. Not just the rail lines. This is a beach called Dawlish Warren. The sand dunes used to be where the sticks are now placed. All along this particular beach sea defenses are down.
Even at another of our favorite places, sand has been washed over the road, the before and after photo's.
A few years ago this particular road was completely washed away, then rebuilt. Makes you wonder how the road is under all the sand. We love this beach.
Another part of the coast that has had damage. This is part of Teignmouth sea front. Right beside the cafe where we stop for Sunday morning coffee.
Last Sunday this walk way was still open, now they are repairing the rail line, the walk way between the sea and rail line has been closed. The coffee shop was open although we did have a few funny looks because we sat on the wooden benches while everyone else sat on seats on higher ground. Part of the walk way looks decidedly dangerous.
The sea front of the sea side town still has Spring bulbs trying to flower even though they were swamped with sea water.
We live in such a beautiful part of the country.
Storms or no storms, things get cleared up.
Our heartfelt best wishes go out to all those that have been hit by flooding in the U.K. this year.
Freya is over at Cat Flap Cavalier as usual.
I have to add this photo, I.m pleased to say it has nothing to do with water.
A plane high in a clear blue sky yesterday.
We have a new camera with a great telescopic lens. All we have to do is get used to it.
So far we think the new camera is brilliant. It doesn't just reach planes high in the sky.
Where ever you are, in rain or snow, keep safe.
Soggibottom still has dry feet but we are forever water watchers. XXX
