Flamborough Head

On possibly the calmest seas I have ever paddled, we launched from the South Landing beneath Flamborough Head, making the most of the absolute lack of swell to explore every cave of which there are literally hundreds, between here and North Landing. Only in Shetland do I know of caves, arches and subterranean passages that are the equal of these.
But perhaps most striking today, were the chalk pebble and boulder beaches, the colours unlike anything else in Yorkshire.
What would normally be a difficult landing was idyllic...
...and a welcome break before heading on under the Bempton cliffs...
...to the gannets and distinctive arch above which they along with the puffins and all the usual suspects nest.
Enjoying the unique setting on an exceptional day once more, before returning slowly, heat and tide against us, to Flamborough Head and eventually, South Landing.
