With my feet anchored on firm ground, I gazed out towards the approaching storm. The waves appeared to be sucked backwards as the dark, foreboding mass of clouds began to unleash its powerful force of nature. As the first gush of wind hissed past me, I felt extremely vulnerable, and hastily retreated from Land's End. On leaving the playground and lighthouse I continued my isolated walk to one of my favorite dolphin watching spots. It felt strange that on most mornings I would chat to the regulars, but today nobody had come to see me off. I took as a welcoming break, being familiar with the fast - paced lifestyle of Paris.
