Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Newquay is of course, surrounded by wide, golden and very famous beaches. Many are particularly good for surfing and even on calm days, many surfers can be found splashing about in the waves. Here is the most popular surfers beach, Fistral.
To the south of Fistral Beach a quieter stretch of sand awaits those who like a more peaceful way of life. The Crantock beach lies at the head of the river Gannel.
At the other end, North of Newquay, Porth Beach is popular with Gulls and also marks the outfall of a trout stream, which originates in Porth Reservoir a few miles inland.
