We are really privileged to have this in our view from home. It is never the same as the various shipping (cross channel ferries and Military shipping of various nationalities amongst them) and fishing boats and pleasure boats provide constant interest - not to mention the weather which brings contrasting effects from mirror calm and strange tracks across the water to choppy surface,with white horses and breakers crashing over places like Fort Bovisand in stormy weather. The appearance of the mile long breakwater itself changes with the state of the tide disappearing almost completely with a high Spring tide. The skies too can be most dramatic with a great variation of sunsets, colours and cloud formations. The view over to the Cornish side from Devon with Cawsand and Kingsand and Mount Edgecombe is most attractive often with Cawsand and Kinsgsand lit up by the only available sun light - but on a misty day Cornwall and indeed the breakwater can disappear without trace. The South West Coat path is most attractive to walk along on the Devon side from Wembury and its Mewstone, along past Bovisand and out to Jennycliff and Mount Batten with its pier. Several historic Forts can be seen from the Sound - Fort Picklecombe on the Cornish side and Fort Bovisand (already mentioned) and Fort Stamford near MountBatten where there is also an ancient tower set on a hill top.
