and admire the view. This is a perfect spot for gazing over the Bristol Channel. On a clear day you can see virtually all of the Somerset coast on the other side of the Channel, from Avonmouth all the way to Ilfeacombe. A clear view over the Channel is usually a portent of bad weather to come, though.

It is a wonderful spot. Actually one of my favourite times to be here is at midnight. Yes, I do sometimes come to this spot at midnight. Sitting on that bench in the dark, you can see the lights of towns on the other side of the Channel, and the lights of ships going past, and the lights of aircraft looming up out of the darkness as they prepare to land at the airport nearby. To sit and breathe the air coming off the sea and listen to the waves crash on the rocks beneath I always have the feeling that at that particular moment there is no place on earth that I would rather be.

Is that Flat Holm there in the distance?

cariadus says:

Either Flat Holm or Steep Holm, or possibly both.

It is a lovely image. Definitely can see the appeal at midnight.

The dog isn't impressed when we go here at night, though. He obviously thinks I'm crazy! (and the wife does too!)

You must be crazy honey, you have put up with me for 30 years!

cariadus says:

True! :)
But not as crazy as you for putting up with me.

The other half! says:

I tell you what.... on a warm (note the emphasis on warm) Summer night, I will come with you and sit on the bench...and we can be crazy
