Wind and Waves Pound Sannox
Todays hefty southerly wind and a very high tide caused by the New Moon has lead to some pretty chopping conditions out at sea. Here’s a selection of photos from around Sannox at lunchtime today.
Don’t be fooled, when you see waves crashing over jetties like that, stay clear. They look white and fluffy but they pack a punch and can easily knock you off your feet, not even I would stand a chance in that sea today! Even along at the beach the water races in with each wave, it looks like you can stand on the beach but you only need 4 inches of fast flowing water to make you lose your balance, even less than that if the sand is washed away from beneath your feet… so respect the water, and never ever turn you back on the waves!
