Doris woke me up in the early hours of yesterday and I couldn't get back to sleep. The wind was howling and the rain lashed it down all day. It's the first time in a long time that I didn't take Annie out for her walk. There is a little bit of damage to our garden fence, not entirely unexpected as the fence needs replacing but our hands are tied until our solicitor sorts out the boundary dispute for us which has being going on for almost a year now.
Earlier in the week I went to take some more photographs of the pier but I learned on the local news last night that it has been damaged even further in yesterday's storm. I'll post my photographs anyway as they show how derelict the pier has become. As you can see in my first photo there was a security guard on duty. I would imagine the pier will be dismantled as a matter of urgency following yesterday's further collapse.
After taking these photos I walked Annie into town and sat at a table outside a cafe, ordered a coffee and no sooner had it been served to me it started to rain. I don't have much luck :)
