I don’t often go to the beach during the summer, but my youngest son and family paid us a visit in early July and we met up at Godrevy for lunch and a wander on the beach. It was a beautiful day with barely a whisper of a cloud in sight.
Later on in the month I was in St Ives itself having taken middle son to the GP early in the morning and we went for a short walk to the harbour and the pier then around to the pretty little Porthgwidden beach where we stopped for a coffee. Again it was a beautiful day. The water was the most gorgeous cyan colour in the clear light.
Living where I do in West Cornwall I am practically surrounded by the sea. The downside is we get more than our fair share of foggy weather and during the school holidays a lot of visitors which mean the roads are choked and car parks full. The upside is we have soft golden sandy beaches within a 20 minute drive and the most fabulous colours of the water ranging from aquamarine “water of the sea” to ultramarine “beyond the sea” like these images show.
And when the visitors go home, we have it all to ourselves…
