Blustry days in Bournemouth

DSC07287 (1024x681)The southern edge of Storm Desmond grazed Dorset yesterday, drawing in strong southwesterlies that raised tides and waves all along the coast.  It also stayed unseasonably warm, additionally drawing surfers and stormwatchers together along the piers.

‘could have been a lovely sailing day…
