SOOOOO, earlier in the year there was a week which produced exceptionally higher than usual tides, coupled with these high tides were very strong/storm winds which in turn made the tides even higher. This caused flooding around the country and also caused the roadway to flood on Wallasea Island when i was out walking the dogs one day. It didn’t actually cross my mind to check the tide heights before venturing out which nearly cost me my van. Fortunately i got back to the van before the water could get any higher than just above the bottom of the bumpers. My mistake and i got of lightly with just wet feet where i had to wade through the flooded road.
Heres a short video i took of the water as i returned to the van.
