Another early morning on the beach....

The sunrise this morning was almost showing the colours of a sunset due, in part, to the cloud cover as it arose over the eastern horizon...a magical time of day.
Looking over to the newly breached spit at 7.15 a.m.

.and underfoot.. there were masses of slipper limpets brought in during the recent Storm Imogen all shimmering in the   frost as the sun came up...

A superb morning but the day gradually took a turn for the worse.

Early morning at the breach....

...or is it going to be the new harbour entrance constructed free of charge by nature!

Wide angle view of sunrise over the breach  7.15am 
Each tide changes the profile and appears to reduce the height or depth of the spit at this point.

One wonders what discussions the various authorities will be having now!

Early morning on the beach.

The Yacht Club before sunrise.

Looking towards the 'Mulberry'

I had hoped for a good sunrise but heavy cloud cover  made sure it didn't happen...this is the best it got!

Reflections in the Little Lagoon.

Later in the day the peace was shattered by two low flying 'birds' over the spit...

The difference a day makes!

The sea pounding  the spit yesterday.

The calm after the storm...a panoramic shot of the breach today . Difficult to see the extent of the breach from this photo but probably 200 yards wide

Storm Imogen hits Pagham Beach

Force 9 gales and a high tide brings more concern to beach residents....we are all still here  but at times just a little concerned as  huge waves lashed the beach.

The area in front of the Yacht Club suffered yet again.....

and further along the East Front Properties the erosion continues...,
The fishing boat and crab pots again in danger.
As I looked out at 4.00 pm as the tide had receded I noticed 2 or 3 men struggling in the of them fighting against the outgoing tide....

He was hauled out....and it seems that the local fire authority were having an exercise!

Three units in the 'old' car park...
There's always something happening on the beach!
