Guernsey's West Coast Battered

October 19, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

For those of you who have watched the news this week or have tried driving round the west coast this wednesday and thursday will know that its been hit pretty bad by the high tides. With tides up to 9.9m on the wednesday evening and 9.8m on the thursday morning, waves that where said to be up to 50 feet high where enough to say goodbye to part of Perelle coast road, taking half of the road out to sea with them.

Well as my luck goes I'm never in the right place at the right time and i was on the east coast heading in to St.Peter Port on the wednesday evening,  i realised there where a few waves jumping on to the road minding there own business, as they do....

As i got to town, got my self some food and had a sift through Facebook i come across the Guernsey Police page for the first time, i thought it was great seeing there updates, the information they where giving out was very useful. By the thursday morning all i had to do is visit there page again, know exactly what the tides where going to be and when, know what roads where going to be closed so i could drive right down to Cobo bay and stare danger in the face, or should i say fun. 

In the end Cobo didn't want to play, as i said earlier I'm never in the right place at the right time, so decided to rush down to Vazon, at a safe 35mph of course where the fun was and danger facing was going on, the photos will give you the rest of the story.
