High tide at Knott End

I was in Knott End for a meeting of the Over Wyre Art Society and I was driving down the promenade to get a bite to eat before it started. I was suprised to see the tide so high that it was washing up against the sea wall. It is usually so far out that the upper part of the sand bank are uncovered. 

This was the view from the end of the village square with its shops and houses. The road turns left at the end and becomes the main promenade.
