A bright, low sun greeted me at Daymer Bay for this Christmas holiday visit to North Cornwall. Visitors and locals alike were enjoying the mild, clear day. There are fine views across to Stepper Point and Padstow from Brae Hill, as well as a glimpse of the little church at St Enodoc, sheltering behind the hill on the golf course. This is an idyllic place, highly recommended.

A grey, mild morning greeted me for my winter visit to Daymer Bay, located on the Camel Estuary in North Cornwall. I went up Brae Hill and round to Rock then back via the sand dunes, a wonderful walk. The spirit of John Betjeman was in the air. He is buried at St Enodoc Church and has a statue at St Pancras station in London, pictured below. The ebb tide made the beach glisten, so I climbed through the rock pools and up towards Greenaway on the other side of the beach, where I met Elaine, who explained her attachment to the area.
