Clear Spell

Once the storm clouds had passed, we were treated to some beautiful, blue skies and sunshine to enjoy the coastal scenery.
The wind had died down a little, but was still strong enough to whip up some pretty hefty waves as we walked around the Pentire Peninsula and looked across Fistral Bay, towards the Towan Headland.
A few brave surfers were bobbing about in the breakers, but mainly, it was all about the views.
Where sea meets rocks, you always get a bit more drama...
and a bit more spray in the face!
In the opposite direction from the town, we had a long walk towards Porth and the Trevelgue Headland, crossing Porth Beach Bridge on the way.
From the Iron-age settlement of Trevelgue Head and looking back towards the mainland, a panorama takes in the sands of Porth Beach on the right and Whipsiderry Beach on the left.
Below, sheltering from the wind on the cliff face, a pair of Fulmars seemed to be more than happy with each other's company.
Whipsiderry Beach makes another fine panorama picture too, before heading back to town - time for a Cornish Cream Tea, I think!!!
More tomorrow..
