Flamborough Head

What a superb section of coast this is: bold headlands, secluded coves, dramatic caves, arches and chalk boulders that turn the sea emerald green all combine to make this one of the best trips on the east coast.
The chalk cliffs stretch into the distance as we head north west towards the gannet colony, where there were still significant numbers of these magnificent birds...
...passing numerous caves...
...indulging in a little rock hopping...
...passing through dramatic arches...
...in both directions...
...before exploring some of the more intricate passages on our way back towards Flamborough Head, from the beach at Speeton.
Having passed North Landing, where we launched, now heading south east, we pass through what are surely some of the best caves and tunnels on the English coast, before discovering yet more intricate arches...
...and enjoying further rock hopping, the shallow platforms and narrow channels combining on occasion to funnel the slight surge and provide a little excitement: some unconventional bracing techniques saving embarrasment!
Returning from beneath the light, the breeze drops away, leaving us to finish the paddle back to North Landing in idyllic conditions.
