Godrevy

One of my favourite seascapes is out by Godrevy Head and lighthouse. Although the cliffs are suffering from erosion and several sets of steps and stairways have collapsed there are still a few ways down onto the beaches if you take care.

    You have been enjoying some unusually good January weather down there, Jude. Shame it’s not set to last. Lovely sky here. (Be careful on those eroding footpaths…)
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      I’m itching for another blue sky day to walk the headland there. Not today though and rain on the way apparently.

      1. beetleypete says:

        Some sun here, but very cold. Rain forecast for the weekend. (As usual…)

  2. Lynn says:

    Looks stunning Jude! We have had rain her the past few days in Ontario, Canada. Hoping for more snow!

    1. Heyjude says:

      We don’t seem to get much snow these days. Wet and mild unless there is a freak storm!

    It looks great, Jude. We love lighthouses. ❤ Is this far away from where you live?
    We had glorious sunshine in Cley too and went to the beach. The waves were huge and I felt almost sorry I didn't bring my tripod, but it was great to feel the warmth(!) of the sun again. The weather forecast promised cold weather and I was hoping for some frost, but it's more like spring. Which is great for Pete and Ollie, but we love real wintertime …

      Maybe you are protected more on the coast. It was cloudy and dull here today, but not particularly cold. The lighthouse is about 10 -15 mins drive from here.

    Stunning place, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s a place I love. Makes me very relaxed.

      1. Sue says:

        And I have revisited the little Walled Garden in Sunbury today, as I was over that way seeing a friend…that is a place that relaxes me!

        1. Heyjude says:

          How is it in winter?

        2. Sue says:

          You will see tomorrow, I think!

    A lighthouse is always a winner and I can see why you love it there. Hope you get your blue sky honey, it’s grey here and very mild. Have a lovely weekend 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Grey, mild here too. Planted some colourful primulas yesterday and spotted my white ‘Christmas Rose’ hellebore has buds – last year it had none at all. Planning a lazy weekend – reading, blogging, watching the garden birds. Hope all is well with you.

  6. How gorgeous, I’d love to photograph that at sunset methinks 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      I had a go once, but by the time I reached the site the sun had practically disappeared under a black cloud (the header photo if you press HOME). I shall try and time it better this year! I hope you weren’t caught out by the recent fires over your way. Looked horrific.

      1. Yes, sorry, I saw the header afterwards and thought it was quite nice. I’d try and get there early and set up and manage around that. The fires weren’t as close to me this time around, more Glencairn, Welcome Glen and Simonstown. I could hear the sirens all day long and could smell the smoke but the visibility was still fairly okay unlike last time. I’ve just got such a backlog of photos to deal with, firstly from my son’s wedding and then my Morocco trip that I couldn’t gather the energy to go out photographing the fires this time. It was awful though.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Wedding? You have been busy. Where is he living now? And did he get to complete his degree?

        2. I have indeed hence no blog posts for months. The wedding was in the Overberg and was really lovely. He’s busy with his second year which is a practical year with a firm.

        3. Heyjude says:

          Well congratulations and good luck to him for the year ahead.

    It’s a lovely spot there Jude ! A great place to go early morning too 😉 when you feel the urge to capture a lovely dawn .

  8. Such a lovely place you live in, Jude. Post a lighthouse pic and you e got me. 😃

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks for the catch up Sylvia! It must be taking you ages to trawl through everyone’s blogs that you missed whilst enjoying yourself 😀 😀

      1. It’s quite a task, but I’m doing my best. 🙂
