Someone once commented on this blog that it always looks so lovely and sunny in Cornwall. It’s not. I just don’t have a weatherproof camera. This week we have had a lot of heavy showers and happened to get caught in one down on the beach at Kynance Cove.
I waited patiently for the lady in the red jacket to walk past the lady with the red hair. Only after I had taken the shot did I see all the other reds in the photo!
Near to the Hayle estuary (The Bluff) is a designated Kitesurfing zone. I knew that it is not safe to swim in the river and the estuary due to fast running currents, but I had no idea that kite surfing went on here. Makes perfect sense as there are no swimmers or surfers to get in the way and the shallow estuary waters make it perfect to skim along the surface. The flat beach is backed by high sand dunes and Marram grass and stretches the three or so miles to Gwithian sands and Godrevy lighthouse.
