This seemed like a hopeless cause.
This is taken from inside the Polana Restaurant, minus the usual charming decor & chairs.
For a view from the outside, please see [link]

A team of workers would mop frantically trying to push the water out & keep the level down. Every 20 minutes or so another collection of big waves would hit.
Seconds after I took this picture, the water level had risen to knee height.
...more to follow

Many thanks for all the +favs and comments.

To :iconwodewose: for suggesting the DD and to :iconestudio: for featuring it.
I am deeply honoured.


To think that I had to phone a friend for a lift to get me to the location, because my car had broken down on route.
Talk about timing - it couldn't have been more perfect.

Suggester says: "For the capture of a moment; for the drama of the scene; and for the sheer human impact it's one of the finest news photos I've seen in a long time. Just check out the facial expression, the water bursting through the window - and the vain wielding of that broom or mop."

I think you're out of luck.
The sea is pretty flat at the moment - not even that great for surfing ... but beautiful winter days :)
