Lindisfarne Island lobster pots and stone buildings. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Northumberland on the northeast coast of England. When the tide comes in the island is shut off from the mainland twice a day. Spending a night on the island when the tourists have left on their coaches or in their cars, increases the sense of splendid isolation. It gives a slight glimpse into the past, when the inhabitants didn’t rely on tourism, but on fishing, the production of Lindisfarne mead, made by the monks at the abbey on the island, and catering to the pilgrims who traveled over the tidal sands to pay homage to Saint Cuthbert. Thanks for looking. G

I love the feel of this image. Your story of the past is somehow very, very present.
