Newquay, one of Britain's top surfing destinatiions.
This afternoon, after a 16 hour rail transfer from Glasgow, Scotland we atrrived at newquay, North Cornwall in S.W. England.
Newquay has a population of 20,000 and is best known as a holiday destination due to its mild climate, sandy beaches and surfing facilities off Fistral Beach which is exposed to the vagaries of the Atlantic Ocean weather patterns.
Strong winds and rough seas at Fistral Beach today.
After arrival we undertook a coastal walk incorporating Fistral Beach in course of which were caught in a hailstorm and experienced very stormy conditions which generated some useful photo opportunities.
