I hope you didn’t go any closer to the edge. 🙂
I didn’t, because I am sensible, but I did see two young women with their legs dangling over the edge watching the sun set with a beer in hand!
That is what enrages me…the ambulance they might need could have been needed by someone more deserving
Some people just don’t have a clue.
But there’s a flippin’ warning sign…. I bet they would take selfies too…. Grrrr
Oh, it gives me the creeps when I see that.
Is there much cliff. Crumbling happening in Cornwall? We’ve had one slip at Potato Point.
It seems to be happening all around the coastline – I have seen slippage on the south and north coasts. The coastal path runs very close to the edge and in some places has had to be moved further back.
Whoops! It’s a common enough sight around here. Happy Sunday! Hope you can still move! 🙂 🙂
Surprisingly not at all achy today, but the joints were painful last night. Need to finish a raised bed and plant some winter salads, but it is hot today. Hunkering down at home as the beaches (and Penzance) will be heaving!!
That’s the thing about living on the unloved north east coast. Very easy to find a beach. The weather is the problem. 🙂 🙂 But it’s been pleasant today.
Been beautiful here. No wind either! I bet there are a lot of sunburned and sore people tonight.
Not as bad as the east coast, I believe, but happening all round. It always has done of course, but there were no health and safety officers back then… 🙂
13th Century ‘global warming’?
‘In the Anglo-Saxon period, Dunwich was the capital of the Kingdom of the East Angles but the harbour and most of the town have since disappeared due to coastal erosion. At its height it was an international port similar in size to 14th century London. Its decline began in 1286 when a storm surge hit the East Anglian coast.’
Best wishes, Pete. x
I imagine us as lots of small islands off mainland Europe eventually (like all the islands off the coast of Scotland) and of course the east coast will disappear entirely.
I guess it’s kind of obvious that cliffs crumble. But apparently we need warnings. Waves come in, too. I have seen signs warning about that also.
Our coastal paths run very close to the edge and some of these edges literally hang over thin air! I have never seen a sign about waves though 🙂
We’re seeing more and more coastal erosion; oddly enough, a lot of it is happening where people have chopped down trees that block the million dollar views from their cliff-top mansions.
Chopping down trees is never a good idea…
Especially the very very old kind that are evolved to grow in sandstone and hold cliffs together. But they do spoil those harbour views!
True. But better that than having your home slide into the abyss…
You’d think so 🙂
Karma can be a bitch.
I don’t know if I could stay away..
I think you would!
Ahh we have many of those in east Devon and west Dorset.
It appears that our island is shrinking!
