Windy Westbrook Walk
Just got back from a ramble on Westbrook cliff tops as Hurricane Gonzalo flicks its tail towards us. At 12 noon high tide has passed and fortunately the gale is 'westing' rather than 'northing' at the moment. Walking towards Westgate it was difficult to remain perpendicular as the strength of the wind moves towards its predicted 70 MPH. Breathing is also difficult given the strength of the gale. No spectacular pictures of tidal surges. Next high tide around 11 pm tonight might be more difficult if the wind springs to northwest as predicted however the tide tables show the high is a moderate 4.9 metres unless there is a surge in the North Sea.
