Stormy seas

Last night’s strong winds and stormy seas have left their mark on the new boardwalk at Newborough: it now ends abruptly on the edge of a mini cliff of sand.

The sections of the boardwalk that are missing have been washed along the shore.

And some of the boards that have been washed along the shore.

A cardinal marker buoy has also broken free from its moorings and is now sitting high on the beach near the main car park. The black fins on the marker buoy indicate the direction to which mariners should pass – in this case, as the arrows are pointing downwards, boats should’ve sailed to the south side of the buoy (when it was in situ, obviously).
