Windbreaks can be an essential item for a day at the beach in Cornwall any time of year. It's easier to pack your windbreak than try and figure out which beach at which state of tide on which coast is going to be sheltered from the wind.
Here we are on Crantock beach on a day where in the wind it was zipped up coat weather, whereas out of the wind it was toasty.
Interesting that two of the windbreaks have the same stripes. I wonder if they only come in two designs?!
