Jetty Pillars

My theme this week is our visit to the Farne Islands back in September 2010. We took one of the many popular tourist boat trips from Seahouses on the Northumberland coast, landing on Inner Farne after cruising around the islands.

As you can see from Google’s satellite photo, the harbour at Inner Farne features quite a long jetty, along which tourists disembark and embark once again at the end of their visit. Underneath this concrete structure, down by the water’s edge, can clearly be seen the pillars that hold it up as it marches out into the bay.

Footprints In The Sand

My theme this week is our visit to the Farne Islands back in September 2010. We took one of the many popular tourist boat trips from Seahouses on the Northumberland coast, landing on Inner Farne after cruising around the islands.

We had an hour on Inner Farne itself, and towards the end many of the tourists made their way down to the small harbour to sit on the beach and wait for the boarding to begin. The sand here was pretty dry, keeping only a hint of the footprints as we passed over it.

Do Not Lean On Fence

My theme this week is our visit to the Farne Islands back in September 2010. We took one of the many popular tourist boat trips from Seahouses on the Northumberland coast, landing on Inner Farne after cruising around the islands.

From the boat, we got to see impressive sea stacks, and once landed on Inner Farne, we were free to wander up to the top of them along the coastline. They are roped off with a very sturdy steel cable fence, and I don’t know about you, but I’d do what the sign says!

Marker Stone

My theme this week is our visit to the Farne Islands back in September 2010. We took one of the many popular tourist boat trips from Seahouses on the Northumberland coast, landing on Inner Farne after cruising around the islands.

All around Inner Farne, you’ll find these small white marker stones. The TH stands for Trinity House, who operate the Farne lighthouse remotely from Harwich in Essex.

In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

Barmouth sits at the mouth of the Mawddach, a river that has carved a stunning estuary over the years. Apart from the beautiful railway bridge (which I’ve probably bored you to death with by now!) it is home to a little harbour and plenty of small boats.

Project 25×9, because some photos deserve a wider perspective …

Purple And Soaked

My theme this week is our visit to the Farne Islands back in September 2010. We took one of the many popular tourist boat trips from Seahouses on the Northumberland coast, giving us about two and a half hours offshore, cruising around the islands before landing on Inner Farne.

Despite the good weather we enjoyed during our trip, it pays to remember that you are sat on a small boat travelling out into the North Sea, and that you should expect to get a bit of a soaking if you want to sit on one of the outdoor seats to enjoy the view. Dress sensibly, like this lady did, and it will all add to the fun of the day.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photos. During this trip, we did make landfall on Inner Farne (where we visited St Cuthbert’s Chapel, and next week I’ll share those photos with you. Have a great weekend!
