Yes, I know it is a ship, but I liked the alliteration.
A new transatlantic data cable connecting North America and Europe from New York to Bude and down to Spain lands on Crooklets Beach this weekend. The ships can be seen in the bay, currently working on the cable further out to sea.
It was a good time to go and have a look last night while everyone was watching the football (well done, England). Shame I forgot to take a proper camera.
The beach was empty, dogs could run on Summerleaze and Middle Beach and the parking was free. Excellent.
Meanwhile, a bit of history was happening before our eyes.
