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.
I spotted these sandbags a little bit inland from the causeway, where they were vainly trying to hold back water flooding over the road. In general, most motorists slowed down at this point, but there were several who did the exact opposite, and really went for it to see how large a splash they could achieve. Just something to note if you ever walk onto the island yourself!
