Carlyon Bay, Cornwall: Sand, Sea and Cliffs
It had been a rough morning weather-wise. When the rain stopped we decided to have a quick walk along the beach at Carlyon Bay to blow the cobwebs away.
The sky gradually improved so I snapped a few quick photos - nothing too special. Not like the time we had a meeting with barrel jellyfish.
Not many people about. The rusty looking fence, to the left of the photo above, is part of the supposed redevelopment of Carlyon Bay. There are plans to build a beachside village here - but this has been said for many, many years. Details of the proposed development can be seen here. I'll believe it when I see it!
At the back of the beach are cliffs - it's quite pleasant walking along the coastal path at the top of the cliffs.
As the weather had been a bit rough there was a line of seaweed and shells on the seashore.
I was hoping to find treasure rather than sea shells - but, as usual - we took a few shells home.
The photo below may seem a bit strange but a river of water runs across the beach from the cliffs and cuts its own path across the sand. Somehow any developers would have to solve this problem.
Another view of the cliffs. Oh, and if you walk to the far end of the beach in the summer months beware of nudists!
I'm starting off in Mevagissey for today's post, with it's jumble of boats and fishing paraphenalia. I'm now...
