Lockdown over , Cornwall Holiday July 2020 pt 1

 Our Cornwall holiday is a go ,the Coronavirus lockdown measures have been lifted for campsites from July 4th  .Kay at Crossroads campsite where we normally stay ,at Cubert near Holywell bay has confirmed opening  so we are on our way , leaving about 2.30 ish to hopefully escape all the heavy traffic that will also be heading to the south west today. 

The M6, M5 and A30 were mostly clear , but all the services along the way were rammed with motorhomes and caravans so we had the best decision leaving very early.    As it turned out ,less than an hour after we joined the A30 it became gridlocked by all the vans we had seen parked up om the way!

All set up , its a bit damp and misty but forecast is looking ok for the next few weeks.

A first walk down to Holywell beach , its about 20 minutes walk across the dunes from the campsite.

Yes the Holywell Horrors, as they are referred to when down here seem to know the way down to the beach, and its steep  1

The sea is rough, with strong wind the waves are crashing onto the beach, so keeping the dogs well safe.

                                The next morning time to let the dogs have a good splash!

Beautifull blue sky this morning , the big waves have left deep patterns in the sand , this will be a good feature for a sunset shoot one evening.

The dogs are loving this beach ,  its not the best for them when tide is high as it gets deep quite suddenly , but like this its great and quite shallow. 

                                                                Hahaha    what a face!

I have come down to the beach this evening with Ozzy to shoot some wave images, its very windy with a big surf crashing along the beach and headland.  Chester cant come as the moment you stop walking he starts barking loudly  and doesn't stop!

 There are some huge waves tonight , using the 5dsr and 100-400 L to take these images, Ozzy is sitting near me watching, such a good boy .
 This wave almost reached to top of cliffs !

                                                             A crop from the above image. 

Nice wave tube.

                                Back up top now watching the waves , a great evening .
