Yesterday the 3rd of January was just a little wild. Our usual sea front walk, had to be done with full winter gear on, totally different from our last stroll that way.The first video shows the front looking toward (holcombe) Dawlish, its here and a little further along that the trains have loads of problems. The sea can throw waves up to nearly 10 metre's high, these wash away the railway line foundations , so stopping trains from running until repaired.On the third clip (as it starts) you can see a train disappearing into the murk. I put on the first clip to show one or two waves just topping the sea wall. The middle short clip is of the sea wall where a walk way juts out into the sea, as the waves hit this they froth the sea up until it looks just like snow!!, the kids agree and spend hours playing, kicking some even rolling in it.

I don't remember so much foam from the high seas when I was a kid in Devon, perhaps it's all the pollution in the water?
Great videos.
I love to watch the big waves. I got soaked many times in CM when I got too near the railings on Seaside Hill.

Good videos! The foam must be irresistible to children! Those are certainly some rough seas. I'd hate to be out in it!
