Was this today?

Was there about half 3 this afternoon and there were loads of RHIBs and hard boats there moored up.

Did see a small event on the beach but no one seemed to be giving them any bother.

Was this morning, about 11.00
Someone arrived by large chopper, appeared on the beach, with horses, and lots of security operatives, keeping people off the beach.
Said chopper disappeared about an hour later.
We had gone to play in donut by this time.

That's as long as you don't tie up to 30 mm rope 😜

How was Mr. Security Guard communicating with you? - 70m off must have been a challenge for them.

Never underestimate the power of an 'islander'.

I heard a few have six toes.....so may well have also developed a capacity to shout really loud or even swim faster than a fish.!!

Sounds like somebody turned up that was either famous or had a lot of money and employed a load of people to shout 'git oorf ma land'

I've not had any problems.
