What a difference two days make.

With glorious winter sun shining today it is hard to believe the county was hit by some of the worst weather it has ever seen just 48 hours ago.

Penzance Promenade suffered extensive damage on Friday when waves as high as 90ft crashed along the coast and was closed to cars and pedestrians for more than 24 hours.

But today the prom was full of people enjoying an afternoon walk.

With a severe weather warning in place for tomorrow, people all across the county have been making the most of the sunshine.

    Never have I seen such huge waves going over the Prom in Penzance. Newlyn Bridge is unreconisable from the gentle water I paddled around in a a teen. I am in awe of natures power. While you are struggling with water, in Australia at the excat same time we fight with the other element, Fire! Both need to be prepared for and treated with great respect. Everyone stay safe.
