Photographer's Note

While I watched the sun go down, a local fisherman rushed down, set up a wooden apparatus resembling a tripod in the sand, and cast his line far out into the breakers; then he rested his rod on the "tripod".

This little bay is originally a small port that imported coal and limestone and exported slate. All industry is now abandoned and the bay is given over to surfers and bathers. The area is extremely rugged, with steep cliffs and deep, wooded valleys. The coastal path takes one southward to Boscastle and Tintagel.
