Do You Have A Favourite Webcam

Speaking as one who can remember the dark days of Virgin dial up speeds perhaps I can appreciate more than most the fantastic speeds available now via cable and the ability to watch live webcams with no buffering.

Being a steam train nut, the webcam at Corfe Castle on the Swanage Railway has long been a favourite.  http://www.swanagerailway.co.uk/corfe-castle

It's just like being there watching the steam trains come and go, but it does pay to look up the timetable so you know when the next one is expected.

Do you have a favourite webcam you'd like to share with us?

Re: Do You Have A Favourite Webcam

Spend most of my summer holidays going back 40 odd years down in Cornwall.

The Padstow Harbour webcam is a favourite of mine. Makes me look forward to the 2 weeks a year I am on the other side of this camera.

There is also a link on the above site to Rick Stein's webcam above his restaurant, which give nice views of the river Camel.

Re: Do You Have A Favourite Webcam

Nice one nodrogd.  That brings back some very happy memories too as the wife and I spent much of the 70's and 80's taking our summer holidays in Cornwall, initially in Looe and then our favourite Mevagissey but we also travelled around the county a lot and certainly know Padstow.  That website has a lovely video on how to enter Padstow Harbour from the sea ... let's hope not too many illegal immigrants watch it.   Smiley LOL

Oh I am so loving this.  It's amazing what we take for granted nowadays ... here I am sitting in my humble abode in Epsom England watching a beach bar in Turkey live with an amazing music feed as a bonus.   Bring it on.     Smiley Happy

ETA: The paragliders are fascinating too ... done a bit of that myself.

Re: Do You Have A Favourite Webcam

Yes, just added that to my post before I saw your reply.  I've done paragliding and parascending from a speedboat in the Med.  Brings back some very happy memories.

 

That's me in the parachute folks ...

Yes, there's something very soothing and mesmerising about waves lapping ashore.  Looks a bit bleak and grey down there today though.

I think it looks amazing at the moment, like a painting.
