HampshireCam Travels ~ Cornwall - Windswept and Interesting

The images marked *** were shot with a 3.2 megapixel camera-phone I was playing with, a far cry
from the late 1950s when I started my photographic career in the RAF using 8x6 inch glass plates.

Don't be deceived by the sun, this was the first of three days of bitter gale force winds and rain.

The new RNLI boathouse at Mother Ivey's Bay that will house Padstow's new Tamer class lifeboat the "Spirit of Padstow". The lifeboat station was resited to Mother Ivey's Bay in 1967 due to silting up problems at Hawker's Cove.


Soaring high a Herring Gull...


...with another at rest.


Water water everywhere...


...except Padstow Harbour which has a distinct lack of it. - ***

Jackdaw - The eyes have it.


The rain has stopped, the sun is out, but there's still a bitterly cold wind... - ***


...and nobody's using the seats on the coastal path, surprise, surprise. - ***
