|A few hours later, the sea was beyond the flagpole!|
|Biggest Beacon in the World?|
|Relaxed seal surfing in Surf Bay...|
|Will the waves put the fire out?|
|The sea makes an appearance in the beer tent!|
|Going up in flames; encroaching waves on right.|
|Fascinating... .. Could our ancestors have watched a fire like this?|
|Hypnotic - the fire and the waves...|
|The flagpole and fire about to be engulfed|
|The hackle of a Fusilier.|
|Something reminded me of that classic film noir, "The Wicker Man"!|
The next day, I returned to the beach for some exercise. If I hadn't have seen it, I would never have guessed that anything had taken place as there no evidence, except some bulldozers tracks. The wood had had been consumed by the flames, and the ashes washed out to sea. The tents had gone, hopefully onto a lorry and not out to sea.....
Verdict - Better than TV!
And no annoying commentators to spoil ones' enjoyment. Hip, Hip...HOORAY!!
