In 2014 Newquay in Cornwall is known as a Surfing and Holidaymakers Mecca. Newquay Bay and the adjoining Fistral Beach are perfectly positioned on the north coast of Cornwall facing out into the Atlantic Ocean, to catch the full awesome force of the waves.
But the often bleak and windswept coast around Newquay has a softer side, and its seven beaches with miles of golden sand attract thousands of families on holiday every year as well as the surfing dudes and dudettes.
The computer crashed before I could add the other question related to your photographic skills.
Do you recall when during the morning, afternoon or early evening the image leftward of your title was taken? The sky has some rainy-, stormy-looking cloud cover!
Sometimes the computer does not cooperate with the color-, location- and shape-clarity on smaller wizzley images.
Such is the case with your intriguing photo leftward of the title Newquay Cornwall. What is going on in the image, and where is it taken?
Your sub-subheading Boardmasters under the subheading Feasts and Festivals mentions that diverse foods are available through the eating places participating in the annual area music festival.
What would be the most delicious drinks to order at Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay bars?
Re-visiting your wizzley brought to mind something I've been wondering about since my first reading.
Is the boating by visitors not sufficient to disturb the sea-life? How is the grey seal population doing?
Are the fish species that fishermen catch what is available in local grocery stores and listed on local menus? Or are local fishermen employed by a commercial concern that exports the catch elsewhere?
Lejouack and FrankBeswick, Thank you respectively for the article and for the answers!
Why did they burn it? Easy. They want to make an impact on life and to do it the easy way. It is far easier to damage something precious than it is to produce a work of art or artifice.
Lejouack, Thank you for the lovely tour of Newquay! Do you speak Cornish? Why would anyone want to burn such a beautiful church dedicated to such a fearless archangel? Was the restoration true to the original or were there significant changes?
Good article. Newquay is on the north coast of Cornwall, whose hard rocks withstand the mighty Atlantic rollers that crash into it, but it is these that provide the surf, which is attractive to surfers along the whole North Cornish coast. Newquay is a nice, well-maintained little town with a range of facilities to attract the visitor.
I really like the images you have here.
