Hengistbury Head: some big Christmas Day waves
Hengistbury Head: some big Christmas Day waves
It was a blustery and overcast Christmas Day but the drizzle had more or less fizzled out by mid-morning - so this was a windswept walk over the headland but we kept dry. We look west from the clifftop several metres below the highest point (which is by the old lookout building in the distance). The waves were white and impressive while the distant views were lessened thanks to the low dark clouds; Bournemouth town centre is often easy to pick out a few miles along the bay.
