After feeling like my head has been stuck in a pillow all week, I just had to get out. It was a fabulous day, sunny and warm for February. Oh boy it was certainly worth it. My trusty little camera served me well. I will share with you a few shots from my coastal walk at Godrevy, I was wondering if Leanne from Today's Stuff was also there as I know it is one of her favourite places.
I walked along the beach and noticed a couple of guys with huge cameras on tripods pointing out to sea, then saw a head bobbing around in the sea, then two, then three. Seals are very curious creatures and came very close to the beach causing much exciting among the children watching.
I walked around to the cove where they usually congregate, it is surrounded by very steep cliffs so they are left in peace as most people wouldn't try to climb down to them. We do have to keep the noise down so we don't disturb them when they are with their pups.
You could easily walk past thinking they were rocks on the beach.
I might not have a huge lens, but I'm pretty pleased with my zoom.
They couldn't have chosen a more beautiful spot
The lighthouse is such an iconic sight, it always reminds me of my childhood when we stayed at our chalet at Gwithian. I would spend the summers wondering across the beaches and dunes barefoot and wild.
I then walked back along the towans with rabbits scattering everywhere as I approached. I sat quietly for a while, and soon they came out to feed and chase each other around. My cousin has a farm at Godrevy, I'm sure he's not so happy to see them!
......and of course I can't leave out the seagulls. My Australian cousins couldn't get over how big they are when they visited a couple of years ago, it must be all that pasty snatching.
It was a beautiful day on a beautiful beach, so good I forgot about this stinking cold for a while :)
I hope you enjoyed my little trip out, I sure needed it, you know how I get if I can't get to the coast.
