What a tonic to have a whole day of glorious sunshine! I headed off up to Chapel Porth for a good dose of vitamin sea...
The strong easterly wind was whipping the waves into a frenzy of blown spume
each receding wave left whirls of foam
and the sun glinted off ripples in the sand.
The famous Towanroath engine house stands sentinel on the cliff edge just a short walk from Chapel Porth. It pumped water from the 600 ft deep shaft of the Wheal Coates Mine.
Where the seawater had collected in deep pools around the rocks it was the most amazing shades of turquoise and green.
I left feeling very wind-blown but refreshed.
We are not experiencing the same heatwave temperatures that some of you in the east are having, but the sunshine is so welcome all the same!
