Porthleven Waves: The Perfect Picture; or a Watery Death?
For the last few weeks, Porthleven has seen some really great waves. More astonishing is these waves have not happened in winter, but in summer. I like many people enjoy watching waves and awe at the sheer power of the sea. Even though I enjoy watching the waves, I do so with huge respect for the sea. In the past too many people have been lost to the seas off Porthleven. A few of these whilst watching the waves.
Friday saw more of these huge waves hit the coast of Porthleven. Like many others I stood there watching as each wave crashed upon the sea defences. What surprised and shocked me, is people where standing in places that I would only ever think about standing on with the tide out, and the sea calm.
These people must have left their brains somewhere else, or how else can you explain the sheer stupidity of their actions. They are not only putting their lives in danger, but also those of the Coastguards, RNLI and Royal Navy personnel who will attempt in almost any condition to save you.
Please, please think, or else the sea will kill you if you do not respect it.
