Binoculars to see clearly.
Binoculars aka fieldglasses are brilliant and enables one to clearly see in the far distance. A few weeks ago I put a pair of bino’s’ in my works bus.
Since then I have taken great delight in watching birds and animals in the turquoise and blue sea, mainly seals. Even further away. The Isles of Scilly were so clear yesterday through these fieldglasses it felt as if I was right next to them. Everything becomes amazingly clear with fieldglasses if used correctly. It took me back 7 or so years when we saw basking sharks off the coast of Cape Cornwall using binoculars. They have become rare here since and I have yet to relive the encounter. In photo below there is a seal nearly center of the pic. Can you spot it?
With binoculars it would not be a problem! I filed a short snippet of the sea if you are interested.
After a good storm, the tides often bring things to shores. In the last few days an amazing mount of seaweed has been brought into Cornish coves.
My garden would no doubt benefit from some of it. Just a matter of getting it home … it has quite an aroma. Not sure my bus clients would be too keen sharing space with it. In many places, even disused ones, there are signs warning of slippery areas. Worth taking note of if you are out and about along the coast.
Tidal water moving in and out twice every day creates magnificent waves. If and when such energy can be harnassed we will all cheer. An attempt was made off Hayle in Cornwall but as yet no energy has ever been produced. Shame!
Around the Cornish coast you will come across a lot of rusty metal. Rings like the ones below were used by fishermen to tie up boats. Also to heave boats out of and into water.
Disused launches / slipways are left to be taken apart by the sea with every tidal movement and storm. Still, if they are ever needed again they can be set into useable order in a short time.
