Water on the way to the sea-Boscastle, Cornwall
Here another sunny day in the Boscastle of 1998, the River Valency flowing quietly to the Harbour and on into the sea. Not the slightest premonition of the events which would follow some years later with the sudden, serious flooding of 16th August 2004. The bridge in the picture has been replaced after that disaster.
