Do you mean the night you could surf past the petrol pumps and into the dinghy park, when in the Griffin back yard you were getting spray from the surf coming over a 4 story building? I was worried the hole in the road was going to reach the front door, mind you we did have the door and window boards in?
You where there then, I almost forgot the road was getting washed away, had to be careful where you stood that night, imagine if the pub had got washed away that night
good old storm boards meant we could stand in the Griff and avoid the surf and debris outdoors, happily suppin a pint or two-enty.
That would have been a gruelling 60yrd walk to work for you, having to pass the closed pub in the morning.
Here's another little clip from last night 1hr after high water...most thought twice about making the crossing.
