Speedy Sanderlings flitting between the rocks near Wallace Quay, Hannafore, perfectly camouflaged on the ground and a flash of white in flight.
Our Blog latest from the Sail Loft, Looe
What better excuse to walk the dog from The Sail Loft Studio than to visit the @HannaforeKiosk, get your Ice Cream Cornets at the ready, then luxuriously chomp away and survey the beautiful view of the English Channel
Wow a super low tide and it possible to visit Looe Island by foot and its a breeze to walk over the slippery seaweed and amongst the throng to set foot on the island that always seems so out of reach, a few minutes grabbed looking back to Hannafore and Looe then it was time for the trek home, it was a treat and so well supported by locals and visitors alike, a great start to the Easter Holidays
A beautiful sunny day for this year’s lowest tide on Looe Beach.

Well Done! to all who took part in the very damp Looe 10 Miler ‘Hillish & Hellish’
Pretty view from our window overlooking the Harbour, and you can even see the moon
The best known feature of Looe and the harbour is the monolithic and immovable Banjo Pier, battered by storms, bleached by the sun and still rock solid, a testament to its designer Joseph Thomas, Engineer of Looe
This sense over St Georges Island, also known as Looe Island, is its moody side, against the fiery sky as sun sets in the west on a calm winters evening. Legend has it very young Jesus landed there with his uncle, Joseph of Arimethia, who traded tin with the Roman tin merchants, with that as legend it soon became a site of pilgrimage and on 2 or three days of the year when the tides are very low it is possible to walk across the land bridge, ankle deep, and visit this special place for a quick look at the stony beach and a chat with the few island dwellers.
This is the day of the lowest tide so far this year, viewed from the headland near Hendersick Farm a fabulous place to enjoy this part of the coast near Looe at any time of the year and a nice 2 hour circular walk from The Sail Loft Studio in West Looe
