Wild at Wadham
Wadham Beach is a remote cove between Noss Mayo and Mothecombe that is popular with naturists in the summer. No sign of them today though; it was grey and wet, but actually as we started our descent down an alarmingly steep hill to the beach, the skies brightened up and became positively dynamic. Down through a tunnel through a hedge and we slipped down a muddy path and onto the beach, which has the most beautiful, bold striped rocks and is bristling with rock pools and channels. We undressed under the cliff and then ran into the grey sea, where we bounced around in the swell. The silhouette of a cormorant, opening its wings against a shiny steel sky, brought to mind an ancient coat of arms.
