My theme this week is the tiny island of Lindisfarne, famous for being a place of holy retreat and for the mead and other drinks that it produces. Lindisfarne is connected to the mainland by a causeway that is only accessible when the tide goes out, and I made the area of the island around the causeway my focus for the day.
To the east of the causeway, if you pull off the road to the north, there’s quite a large car park that makes a great base for exploring the western end of Holy Island on foot. We’d had a lot of rain the day before, leaving much of the car park (and all of the path beyond!) under water. I was just tickled by this sign, marooned in the middle of the pools of water, telling motorists that they couldn’t go any further.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
