Saunton Sands in North Devon ought to be more famous really, it’s one of the Great bits of Britain. A vast, empty, undeveloped beach, normally only glimpsed by the grockles as they drive by on their way to the smaller, crowded, developed beaches at Croyde and Woolacombe.
Three miles of sea spray, wind and light – Eau de Cheryl is instantly blown to nothingness on Saunton Sands.
I’ve just found the above picture, which I took with my phone in January last year, I think it was. The tiny figures in the distance were in our party, but walking on Saunton Sands is like that: pause for a moment to look at the sea or the dunes and suddenly a great space has somehow appeared between you. Saunton Sands is absolutely crammed with spaces.
