Due to the massive earthquake in Chile most of Japan was on Tsunami alert today. The large wave was meant to hit at around 1pm and promised to reach over 3 metres in height in some places. So of course like a sensible person I made sure I was on high ground well away from the sea went to Enoshima on the coast to take pictures of the thing.
The earlier rain gave way to a beautiful sunny afternoon, a lovely day at at the seaside where I managed to charm my way into standing with the firemen who were keeping watch where basically I wasn’t allowed to be: along the seawall they considered dangerous. Good for pictures not that there was much to shoot other than the afore mentioned firemen keeping a watch with binoculars.
One O’clock came and the talk was of 1:30, then 2:00 then possibly 3:00 and eventually 3:30. Natural disasters are so unpredictable! In the end it didn’t hit Enoshima which is both a good thing and slightly annoying. Of course we could have just missed it as it was too small to notice some other places were affected quite dramatically however.
