Gales Force 7 in Sole, Lundy Fastnet...

Cape Cornwall, near St. Just. A force seven gale blowing, huge seas and a very high tide running despite it being a neap tide. Beautiful to watch but a savage beauty.
The light constantly changes as it plays on the water.
We are located in the old part (Down'long) in St. Ives. It is an area of narrow streets, a bit like some parts of Larnaka and Limassol but much cooler. The harbour can be glimpsed through a narrow strip twixt two houses from the living room. It reveals a little yet enough. Everything is adequate to the need.

Lovely stuff Norman. Was just reading a post about the shipping forecast over on "Nourishing Obscurity" - so many people love it, even us landlubbers.
