For those of you who have been following me for a while now you'll know that my favourite place in the whole entire world is Cumbria, or primarily, St Bees. With all the wondrous locations and places to visit in the world you'd think I pick a more tropical, luxurious place but to me nothing compares to this gorgeous beach. St Bees is a gorgeous headland which was named after the nearby town of St Bees and as soon as my family and I drove there for our first holiday in the Lake District, I was smitten.
The thing I like most about St Bee's beach are the numerous rock-pools and little nooks and crannies which were filled with anemones and tiny fish. Knowing me I get excited at the smallest hint of wildlife so I was definitely in my element. I found jellyfish, pipefish, small fishes in and around the shallows and plenty of crabs. It's a beachcombers paradise!
The beach was especially pretty at dusk. As the sun dips behind St Bee's head, it cast rays all over the sea and they bounced off the surface creating this diamond like effect that you can see in the photo below. I was completely mesmerised!
Whenever we've been there on holiday we've always had really nice weather which has meant I was always up early and off for a walk in the shallows on the beach.
It really is a gorgeous place.
Has any one visited St Bees before?
I hope everyone's having a good week!
