Now that I am living in Devon I have to remind myself that locations in Cornwall are now no longer 6+ hours drive away. Where as a trip to Newquay would be a weekend event, it is now just over an hours drive out of the holiday season.



Watergate Beach With Dave

My parents had mentioned Watergate Beach to me, so without doing my usual pictorial research on Google I took a chance and headed off early January to see what it was all about.

Parking was free, as the charges only apply during the main holiday season from mid March to the end of October, though do check on arrival to make sure these dates haven’t changed. The car park was literally a minute walk to the beach! With Dave my border collie raring to go we set off for some fun on the sand!

The tide was rushing in at Watergate Bay and the surf was high, it was time to leave with a promise to visit again. Dave as you can see was more than happy with this new location in the South West of England.

Hello, I’m Malcolm Oakley, a keen walker, leisure photographer and outdoors blogger. I'm lucky to have lived at the edge of the South Downs National Park, in West Sussex.

Living in Devon I am now walking the South West Coast Path and Dartmoor National Park with my Border Collie 'Dave'.

I hope you enjoy reading about my walks, look forward to reading your comments on the blog posts and YouTube videos. Please do get in touch.
