Last night, at Nalgo Bay

Last night, in an attempt to aid revision by distancing myself from the distractions at home, I packed my camping gear and headed down to Nalgo Bay for the night. It was coming on 9.30pm by the time I got down to the beach. I didn't have very long to get set up but I managed to pitch the tent and get a small fire going before before darkness fell. My lack of foresight continued to be apparent as I realised that I had arrived just in time for high tide. I didn't get very much (any) revision done because I was a little worried that my tent was going to float away. Luckily it didn't and everything seems to still be here this morning.

I woke this morning quite unexpectedly at 5.30am - extremely unusual for me. It seemed to me that it was quite late as there was plenty of light in the tent but when I poked my head out of the door I was greeted by the sight of the sun just peeking over the horizon. What a sight to wake up to! Despite my good fortune it was much too early for any sensible person to be awake, so after snapping a few photos I went back to sleep.

I was greeted by another high tide when I rose again the sea was literally no more than twenty feet from my front door and the beach was empty apart from myself. I spent a lovely hour walking along the beach and taking some photo's before packing up to come home. I thought to myself at the time that I should take something away with me to remember one of my favourite places in the world - but of course, I forgot.
