Wind Mapping Day!

Using the diaries, plus data collected from Weybourne, we made maps which charted the changes in wind direction over the last 3 – 4 weeks on this part of the coast.  In the morning we worked on a beautiful sandy patch of beach, racing against the incoming tide.  In the afternoon we worked at the bottom of the beach road, marking out the map using pieces of chalk found on the beach and then decorating with pebbles and paint made from natural pigments from the beach.

350 at West Runton

10/10/10 We walked and talked. The current and past movement of land and weather spoke to us as we went. Part of the 350 international campaign to cut carbon emissions. see

Tide and moon tables

We thought links to tide and moon tables would be interesting to have. They affect the weather and our experience of the coast.

WindArt Day

Liz brought a series of flags she had made, each bearing the line of a riddle about the wind

We invited visitors to explore the wind, and to make entries into the diary or make a pennant to fly from the shelter
