    Living in the Midlands is very frustrating for a sea lover like me but your site will keep me going between my visits. When little as a family we headed for Woolacombe – lovely . Now we’re a little older Cornwall’s the way. Coverack, St Ives, etc. etc . Love the site.

    Living in Cumbria means I’ve got the best of both worlds. The beauty of the expansive hills and the vast coastline. My new job is to safeguard the water quality of our beaches in Morecambe Bay. With it’s tidal bore, birds a plenty, it’s an amazing stretch of coastline.
