The feeling of freedom that comes over us, when we see that wide, rugged, wild expanse that is the ocean. It commands our admiration and respect. It covers more than 70% of the earth and contains around 320 million cubic miles (1.35 billion cubic kilometers) of water. Our oceans currents govern the world’s weather.Life began in the ocean, and is the home to the majority of Earth’s plants and animals from micro organisms to blue whales.
The North Cornwall coast is more exposed from the Atlantic Ocean than the South coast, with magnificent rugged sheer cliffs and steep valleys. The coastal path, leading down to Bossiney Cove, a short walk from Gilbert Lodge, is one such example of the beauty, that is North Cornwall.
We must respect and protect our oceans from human impact, so we can continue to marvel at its power and beauty.As the poem goes..’A poor life this if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare’.When you arrive at Gilbert Lodge, go across the road, stand, stare and take in that North Cornwall ocean air.
