A pretty wild night keeping us more awake than we would like but followed by a reasonably sunny day – still a bit breezy but sunny. We decided to pop back to Chapel six Marshes for a proper look at the Wind or Sound Tower.
Now the inside is supposed to tilt to line the viewing windows to line up – well it didn’t tilt but they did line up!
And wow what a lovely view to the north (above), straight ahead….
And to the south….
It is also supposed to attract the wind and create sounds – well it didn’t do that either! Maybe the wind is blowing in the wrong direction? Shame as it is a fascinating structure. Still whilst we are here we might as well venture down onto the beach, as it is surprisingly quiet, for some exercise.
Poppydog was soon tearing around alternately chasing tennis balls or gulls, whichever catch her eye.
We didn’t walk far as we have done this stretch before, just enjoyed our little patch of quietness.
Until a dirty great black cloud came along to ruin our fun and cut short our stay – we just made it back to the car in time for it to start lashing down.
Back on site only a few miles down the coast not the merest hint of any rain!! I love how the weather is so incredibly localised, along the coast and how you can often see it coming, even if you can’t always get out of its way!!
