For those not members of wild_photos , I thought i would re-post by pics that I took yesterday here.
Most of you will have seen some of the views, but there are a few new ones - beware, there are 19 photos!
Looking down on the centre of Bude, called The Triangle - next to the War Memorial -
Bude Castle, built by the Victorian inventor, Sir Goldsworthy Gurney -
Looking towards the Castle and Millenium Light -
Our Millenium Light - it is designed on the colours of Bude sand and sea, and on the type of light that the Cornish Tin Miners used, as designed by Goldsworthy Gurney -
One of the three main shopping streets in Bude - notice the River Neet at the bottom of the hill -
One of two Methodist chapels in the town - I shall be here most of the day, as the orchestra has a concert here this evening -
One of the new builds going up - they knocked down the public toilets to build this (the beach is about 100yds behind me, btw) -
Two of the many Surf Shops - Zuma Jays got it's name from a shop in Malibu. Jolly Roger's is a newer shop, however -
The Peace Garden -
One of the oldest buildings in the town - dated in the 1450's -
On the edge of the canal, the Victorians built a coaching inn, which is now a posh hotel (they do nice food there, as well!) -
Looking toards the end of the breakwater, and showing some of the small vessels still in use - lobsters are still caught, as is a bit of fishing.
Showing how the Breakwater protects the river/canal outlet - giving a calf area from the waves.
Standing at "Compass Point" looking down on Summerlease Beach, The Breakwater (built by the Victorians to give a safe haven from The Atlantic. On the horixon you may see some small white structures - no, they don't exist, ask either the UK or the USA governments !!!! -
A natural geological occurance on what used to be the ladies-ony beach ... please note the stones! This is called the Whales Back ... and is a popular destination for geology students -
The Atlantic Ocean - I am at the end of The Breakwater -
Standing on the inner lock gates and looking through the outer to see The Breakwater, and the Atlantic -
One view so that you can see where both the canal (on the left) and the River Neet join and run into The Atlantic Ocean -
And, finally, the road I live in - and, yes, you are looking towards my house (somewhere in the middle of the row)
Unlike the rest of England, we haven't got the blue sky!
