It’s 11.00am on Sunday morning and high tide at Crosby beach. The Iron Men are all submerged and the waves are coming over the sea wall. I was dressed in full waterproof gear and the only problem was keeping my camera dry.
I decided to walk along the coastal path towards Hightown. Lots of people were out walking their dogs or just enjoying a stroll.
The shoreline is gradually being eroded and more and more bricks are exposed. Thousands of plastic bottles are being washed up and litter the ground.
Back at the coastguard station I braved the spray to take a few more pictures.
The RNLI were there keeping a lookout.
Let’s hope that our Coastguard Station can still be saved from closure.
It’s now 12 o’clock and I am feeling rather wet. I realise that my waterproof over trousers are not really up to the job. Time to head home for a hot cup of tea.
