Favorite thing: As you can see, the seas crashed up over the beaches, and on to the beach Promenade. It took several days to remove the debris, and the beaches were still not ready for reconstruction.
Favorite thing: Earlier in the day we had watched this poor palm tree being washed up and down the beach. Then they came and took it away.
Favorite thing: This is the entrance to the Carmila De la Playa - or the path to the beach - from the town. The gates here and at the beach end are locked between Midnight and seven am.
Favorite thing: The week before the gales we watched as the traders tended their beach umbrellas and sun loungers, and generally smartened up their 'patches' for the Spring visitors. then it was all gone!
