Video Time lapse – Camel Estuary
Lovely clip of the tidal action and weather as a time lapse taken looking out over the Camel estuary at Padstow.
Padstow is a very popular town on the north Cornwall coast well know fo its connection with Rick Stein the TV chef who runs several business in the town including a restaurant, deli, cafe and fish and chip shop.
Padstow for sailors is a welcome port however entrance to the harbour in Padstow and the Camel river means getting over the notorious Doom Bar which is a sand bar that has historically been responsible for wrecks and maritime disasters. The Doom Bar extends across the estuary.
Opposite Padsow on the other side of estuary lies the village of Rock which is a centre of sailing, and other maritime leisure activities. It is a very popular holiday home village.
