The Humber Crew Returning from Grimsby

The weather forecast predicted strong westerly winds, and that is exactly what we got! Last night the Humber Lifeboat Crew were forced to 'bail out' from their station on Spurn Point, and take the boat to Grimsby for the night. This means getting up throughout the night to check the boat and move it if required, so not a lot of sleep.
It was a bit of a challenge taking these photographs of the boat returning home, with the wind trying to knock me over and the sand whipping my face. However, I managed to get a few with the strong winds and lumpy swell making for some interesting pictures.
