Trevonne Bay, Padstow, Cornwall
Trevone is a beautiful village in a small bay just over the headland from Padstow. There is a fantastic coastal path along the Padstow estary; past the Doom Bar, the Coast guard station along the very exposed high cliffs to a ruin of tin mine. The path gets quite tricky on rough slaked ground and as you approach Trevone a giant round sink hole has formed where the centre of the cliff has fallen into the sea. There was a further cliff fall while I was visiting and I was glad not to be out walking that day!
I love the long stretches of classically ‘golden’ beaches with big surf and dramatic waves. The sea an almost unbelievavble aqua and purple, swimming here is very exhilarating! And I love being in the sea, body boarding, swimming or out in my brother’s kayak if it’s calm.
I wanted to capture this feeling of thrill as you approach the sea ready to dive into the surf and bracing agaist the breaking waves, the cold waters and that enormous sense of freedom.
