Gannet's Bay by JakeSpain Gannet's Bay by JakeSpain
Gannet's Bay, Lundy.

A good 45 minute hike from my campsite, I had no idea where I was going, it was foggy and most of the time I could barely see 30 meters in front of me! I saw the fog clearing and within view was the top of the headland you see here. I had about 10 minutes of near clear sky before the island was once again shrouded in low cloud which lasted all day.

Gannet's Bay was my favorite spot on Lundy, facing the rising sun and home to a colony of seals it was one of the most peaceful places I have been.

Awesome! May I ask, what country does Lundy belong to? I've never heard of it. Wherever it is, it's gorgeous!

Lundy is a tiny (about 3 miles long) Island nature reserve off the coast of Devon in the south west of England.

Thankyou. Not perfect though, I dislike the rock on the right covering the outcrop in the middle of the bay, I didn't notice at the time and I wonder if I could have found a better compromise if I had...

That sounds pretty exciting... Do you have much experience with that? That would be so much fun, I have a tiny rib down in Cornwall but it's not for the open water...
