Description
"Portreath Harbour"

We were heading along the coast road to St Ives when we called in to Portreath, where the waves were crashing in on a stormy morning.Not sure what this little beacon is at the end of the harbour, but it was getting a pounding. Note.. I have just read some info on one of Vince's images & apparently this "blockhouse" has been recently rebuilt as it was washed away in a storm last year ! It was used as a shelter for the harbour pilot in times of rough seas.

That's not fair- your wave is much bigger than my wave ! If you google images of the monkey house Potreath one can really see the power of the sea and understand why it was washed away early last year. Well captured Martin -Proper Job.
