Morning walk on the cliffs to Depps Beach
It was cooler, but still muggy, a few drops of rain but quite high winds. There has been much controvesy over Petrels Cove, a good little surfing beach but with bad rips on either side and people get caught in them. Last year there was some talk of closing it off, but how do you do that? There are signs warning people, this morning there were people swimming there and only last week 5 people were rescued after they fell in from the rocks on the side. If they close it how to manage that? People will go there any way. People must occasionally look out for themselves. Any way we had a lovely walk and went down to the beach at Depps and there was a pretty desiccated seal body there which I took some photos of and a lovely length of sea weed. On the way back to the car the Bluff looked like a dragons tail going into the water. Some interesting clouds too. A nice walk but I am still stuffed up, I am sure a decent fall of rain would help clear the air.
