Another sunrise - who can sleep, it's Christmas!

By Pinnace
Another one! I thought there'd be fishermen on the main seafront, but it seems either I know less about the running of the catch then I realised, or the chaps have been sworn off to stay home with their families. Or all three. Too far for me to leg it beyond the headland where all the light show was clearly happening so I settled for a wet right foot instead - once planted it's slow to move and the sea hadn't quite finished with that bit of ground. This is the Westward side of The Knap beach or Cold Knap as it's originally called. ALthough it is very exposed, "cold" derives from coal and a knap is a hill. Surprisingly enough, they used to draw coal down a nearby hill for transport elsewhere.
