This idyllic spot yesterday morning was Clachtoll Beach with glorious white sand, indescribably turquoise water and blazing hot sun. Two hours later we, and five other equally stupid friends, were caught out in a torrential downpour, thunder and lightening and were soaked to the skin in seconds! We staggered back to the cars, fighting against a roaring wind and what felt like fire hoses against us and sat in our cars for over 1/2 hour before the storm abated. Then we had a three hour drive home along flooded roads, sitting in wet clothes and with our shoes sloshing water. Now we are trying to dry out the car!
