rivals the Med with idyllic summer high tide
Calm weather combined with one of the highest tides of the year
generated these idyllic scenes in Burnham-On-Sea on Tuesday evening
11.79 metre high tide was among the six highest tides of 2011
and swept beaches clean of litter and reached the foot of the
dunes at Berrow and Brean.
Beach wardens took plenty of precautions in ensuring the beaches
at Burnham, Brean and Berrow were clear of all vehicles well ahead
of the tide reaching its peak.
Three vehicles have got into difficulty in the area over the
past fortnight. The high tide will be repeated again on Wednesday
evening (August 31st) when the tide peaks slightly at 9.24pm.
