Stormy Monday.

                

          Good Afternoon, Yesterday we up here on the east coast of Scotland did not the big storm that hit further south, we did have very heavy rain and a strong wind but we did manage to get to St Andrews for a couple of hours. The pictures above were of two very brave surfers that took to the waves while we were sitting in the car with a coffee enjoying the big waves as the tide came in. They struggled for ages trying to get out to catch the waves as they broke. It must have been very tiring. They had been at it for a while as I had watched them further away then they walked along the beech towards us so it was fine I could just about catch them on camera. They must have been frozen, although they did have on full wet suits but they were brave. By the way I did get out of the car and braved the elements to get these pictures, so I too was windswept and frozen. Till next time. Love,

  

                                                       

By the way the picture of the huge wave at the top was borrowed from a website wish I could see one like that.  J.

Looks very rough out there, we've had a lot of wind and rain down here, but no damage, just cold, can't wait for Spring.

Take care

Hi Joan,  who`d be a surfer or a cormarant, for that matter, in those seas....brrr! Being inland the storm itself didn`t hit us but we had very heavy rain and howling winds that blew the odd tree down here and there. Talk about March coming in like a lion....lol! :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

Great pictures Joan!  Weren't they brave to go out in that!  More guts than Dick Tracy as my dad would say!  We did get the heavy winds and rain down here, but not as bad as some did, thankfully!
