On Easter Sunday, we wanted a place to visit that would suit the hubby, the young man and me. I thought Spurn Point would do nicely. Lots of interesting rocks for the Geologist to analyse, Lots of Militaria relics for the hubby to get giddy about, and plenty of beach combing and photo opportunities for the blogger. We came here last year and the changes environmentally after this years winter storms is immense. For years, man has tried to preserve the very long spit of land that protects the Humber Estuary, but the current thinking is that they now need to allow the spit to move. The young man also told us that Groynes built to protect the seaside resorts further north have had a detrimental effect on the movement of the sand here on Spurn Point.
Brown Tail Moths on the point. Whilst there are still a fair few of these "tents" on the tree's, there are not as many as there were last year. I think that they are trying to eradicate them.
Godwin Battery (about 10 years ago) most of it was still buried underground at the edge of the cliffs. Nowadays, most of it is spread across the beach.
