Surf's up.

Yesterday's big offshore hooley had blown over to the forecast almost nothing this morning and instead of the waves being blown back on themselves the swell was crashing into Walcott Wall even on a dropping tide.

The busy rebuilding of the devastated clutch of single storey, often pre-fab dwellings was well underway but the spray from the top of the tide had  cleared the road and showered their frontage and this was without a strong onshore wind to power the sea landwards. This is all that holds back the sea. The behmoth Bacton Gas terminal which may at times be bringing in 10% of Britain's gas can be seen as the next headland before the Mundesley and Trimingham cliffs in the far distance.
