Cowart's Common Room
Beach Lark

Morning Larks,

I see on Twitter yesterday concerning our beach here in Winterton that an alert has been put up on Erosion. An overnight tide has taken away part of the beach. There is now a 2 metre drop in front of the Dunes Café. It is highly dangerous to walk along the 'ledge' in front of the orange netting. Please turn right and head south towards Hemsby.
Heck.! that is scary.... what if the beach café falls next I thought too and it could happen while I am sat snug inside warming up over a cup of hot cappuccino ShockedVery Happy Must be to do with all those high winds we had recently I think it has affected parts of the Cornwall coastline too.

Thank you for all your healing vibes for me at the dentist yesterday, I am pleased to know at least I don't have to go back until another six months as long as the wobbly one remains without further problems.
Very Happy

Have a good day everyone.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Laughing Not sure I'd fancy the beach house on any of our beaches just now the foreshore is covered in an inch thick layer of ice.

A few of the east coast harbours nearby here have lost huge bits of wall and sea defences over the last couple of weeks too Camilla. Seems a bit weird to us as we didn't see any signs of the last two storms in Inverness, it's just been bitterly cold.

Glad you got the tooth sorted, not that he seems to have done anything to it, hopefully it won't give you anymore bother. Having looked at the calendar properly it's next Tuesday I get mine done not tomorrow... what was it KKC set for our homework! Rolling EyesVery Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Morning FN,

I know, even my daughter said recently that one other beach not far from her here in Norfolk when she visited the other day with the dogs that a huge part of the Cliff had fallen onto the beach sands too.

Dentist did say he could remove the wobbly tooth if I liked but I said leave it for now I am not having anymore pain with it like before so will see how it goes.

Best of luck for next Tuesday then FN with your dentist and new Crowns fitted. Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Not sure I would fancy a beach house anywhere, summer or winter - as opposed to a house with sea views which I should like or a house anyway protected from undermining and salt spray and roaming seals at night.

But, yes, Britain is being eaten up. We lose about a metre of cliff every twenty-five years of so (I've forgotten the exact amount and in some places it is faster than others). Head for Rutland - that's the answer, or maybe Perthshire. As far from the sea as you can get.

Did anyone watch David Attenborough and his Sea Dragon. Most fascinating although it turned out that the sea dragon was quite pathetic compared to the real dragon that bit its head off.

Good luck with the crowns, FN. 'Uneasy lies the head that will shortly acquire crowns' as Shakespeare didn't say. But at least you will have no more fillings to worry about. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Inthemud's Avatar Oh goodness camilla, that is scary about the Winterton beach. I remember a few years back when huge amount of Hemsby fall over the edge. We saw houses hanging over the cliff edge and some had completely collapsed

Re:
Camilla's Avatar I know Muddie, it is quite worrying isn't it with the beaches. The other one in question that my daughter visited was Happisburgh one another huge chunk of cliff gone, I wouldn't expect one could get a house insurance if you bought a property there either. Insurance is something we checked out before we first bought our new cottage here Muddie.

Eeek.! you mention Hemsby too, that is not far from us Muddie.!

Re:
Camilla's Avatar I have heard of Ruttland Fennie, isn't that where the Journalist and Walking Enthusiast Julia Bradbury has a large property.

Never saw the David Attenborough programme and the Sea Dragon another one for me to catch up on.
