Changing Landscape

Our village, like many others in our neck of the woods saw the effects of the flood last Friday. Whilst our house was okay my friends and neighbours Margie and John saw their house completely flooded.


 
Nearby, Skinningrove, where I take Bing to the beach was very badly affected.
 
 






When Bing and I were on the beach yesterday the entire landscape had changed. When I was out with Jon at the weekend we could see the amount of debris which had washed through the village.

A few miles away, Saltburn is another seaside town boasting a lovely tranquil beach. Now and again we go for a walk....

  2. It's strange how our weather lurches from one extreme to another isn't it?

  3. Sorry to hear you had such extreme weather. There looked to be an awful lot of water in the photo you posted the other day. I'm relieved to hear you weren't too affected, it must be devastating for those that were.

  4. Those localized floods don't make the US news; glad you're OK.

    1. The North East rarely makes the international headlines Roger - if this had happened in London you would have heard about it I'm sure.

  5. So sorry to hear about the flooding, Denise. We didn't hear anything about it here. Was it rain or high seas? I'll have to check the Brid Free Press to see if they have anything on it.
    Take care. Glad you didn't have flooding in your home.

  7. Floods are awful. There was lots of flooding in Alberta in July. Houses near rivers were all awash with water, while some of them actually washed away. We live "up" on the prairie, not down in a river valley, so came through fine but some friends are still trying to get things back to normal two months later.
    I love the photo of Bing with his ball. I just compared it with his baby picture, and although it looks like the same dog, the size difference is laughable. Except for the ears. LOL

  9. crikey, I hadn't heard anything about that, so sorry to hear of the devastation caused to your friends home.
    Saltburn was E's very first visit to the beach when we visited friends in the North East last summer
