Walking along the SW Coast Path in Cornwall today it came as no surprise to find myself tripping into AF whilst climbing the steep steps up to the Minack Theatre. We carried on to Porthgwarra where we spotted a seal in very rough seas within the cove.
To be honest we thought that, in such sea conditions, this chap might be in some trouble so close to the rocky cove. We clambered across the rocks to get a better look and it soon became clear that all was well. Obviously seals can have great fun in such surf without the need of a surfboard!
Having enjoyed watching an animal so comfortable with the elements we retraced our steps. Climbing back up from Porthgwarra I realised that I was back in NSR. This is the shortest bout of AF that I have ever experienced, into and out of AF in less than 90 mins.
Excercise, sea air and seal watching. That's the prescription, and it's free....just don't tell Osborne!
