Felix Has Gone
Last weekend our coast got hit by Felix – a very strong storm (actually it was a hurricane with winds that were traveling faster than 30m/s) that made us close the harbour.
All week we were listening to stories how our beaches were littered with debris, how the bravest wade shallow waters trying to catch amber with their nets and how one unlucky young man got trapped in sand (buried in it up to his shoulders!) and spend the whole night shouting for help.
This weekend the sun came out and everyone rushed to the sea. Felix has gone, but we were curious to see what it left behind. Although most of the damage has been taken care of (soldiers were sent to collect broken trees and branches), there still were signs that not long ago chaos governed the waves.
Well, it was hard to believe it’s actually January… it felt crowded on the beach today.
