Big Skies, High Winds, High Seas, Low Tides
First thing on Saturday the combination of high tides and high winds meant you could see the waves crashing against Portland from our cottage in Ferrybridge ( about a mile away!) It was a bit calmer ( still 30mph+ winds) and heading towards low tide when we went by bus to Jackson Gallery and Café for lunch - delicious mini pizzas and Florentines and views out over the sea
Floods on Saturday( red mullet baked with fennel -yum) , Sunday was a little calmer although still windy with incredible skies and cloud formations as the sun rose.
Blue Fish Café we walked back over the causeway, stopping off at the Chesil Beach visitor centre to admire the mudflats in the waning light and then headed to the oyster beds at Ferrybridge - I took so many photos!!!
seabirds where land met sea. There was a very high tide again as we left on Monday but nothing as bad as in January.
Update 5th Feb - video of waves crashing over Chesil earlier today.
