A clear blue sky played out above the beach, such a difference from my previous mist-shrouded visit to Downderry beach. The rising tide still hadn’t covered the varied geology on the beach here, a constant attraction for regular walkers here. This is a fine beach for a constitutional walk, stretching east for miles from here and west towards nearby Seaton. All the facilities that you might want are nearby, too.
A place to reflect for Paul.
Sunshine all the way at Downderry in the winter.
High tide was imminent, as I approached Downderry beach on a misty morning. Although the recent storms had receded, there was still plenty of flotsam and jetsam to be seen, including a mahogany tree stump, carried in from the west. This is a fine strand for an invigorating walk, leading to the east and Whitsand Bay and to Seaton, just to the west. There’s a sea wall path for high tide times. The village of Downderry is well-to-do and has all the facilities that a beach visitor might need.
