Our idea of a night out is watching the sun set into the sea, preferably with a glass of something in hand. With that in mind, we set off in the early evening to Combe Martin. It’s a funny little place on the North coast, with a narrow, muddy beach that isn’t very special, but at low tide there are some interesting rocks and rock pools to explore.
Set into the layers of tilted rock are some caves that must be great fun for children to explore.
We had a good wander around the rocks, and saw little fish and crabs in the rockpools. We finished our walk at the pub at the top of the beach, and sat on the terrace with a glass of cider, and watched the sun set. It was just lovely.
We watched this cargo ship heading across towards the setting sun, wondering if it would make it past before the sun set. And it did – just!
