Autumn has its own attractions here on the Hartland Peninsula. but summer sunshine is my favourite, so to remind us, just a little, here are some photos taken in August at one of my favourite spots in all the world, Hartland Quay.
You can see the magical island of Lundy in the distance – it has looked beautifully clear of late.

Locals love the Quay just as much as visitors. You will often find people sitting outside, socialising, in what must be one of the most beautiful spots in England, enjoying a drink at the Wreckers. It is also not uncommon to have small gatherings for birthdays – a picnic by the sea. And then there is swimming/body boarding (though be careful as no lifeguards in situ).
What is wonderful is that the sea here is amazing whatever the weather – and a storm can be dramatic, as the spray from the waves hits the car park! Whatever the season, it is well worth a visit.
