When my spirits are flagging Cellars Beach at the mouth of the Yealm estuary always lifts my mood. It has a calm, almost Mediterranean beauty; the water is always crystal clear, and is an amazing range of colours from deep green to turquoise, depending on where you are along the estuary. The walk through the woods, with glimpses of limpid river through the trees, is delicious. The sun shone today and as I swam in the fresh, beautiful water, watching little fishes scatter over the shingle, my heart lifted.
