This is the Gannel Estuary after high tide. As the waters subsided, the seawater left behind froze into peaks like egg-whites over the grasses, quite a phenomenon! We have never seen anything like this before. It must have been very cold to freeze the seawater! I wonder if other Cornish estuaries had the same effect?
Despite this cold weather we had a great double surfing session first at Little Fistral and then later at Watergate Bay. To stay warm we got suited up at home and wore booties, gloves and hoodies, and we got out of our wetsuits at home in the hot shower! It’s the only way to go!
