4th May, Lindisfarne Tourists

“For with the flow and ebb, its style
Varies from continent to isle;
Dry shod o’er sands, twice every day,
The pilgrims to the shrine find way;
Twice every day the waves efface
Of staves and sandalled feet the trace.”

Sir Walter Scott.

Bank Holiday Monday

I am anticipating lots of visitors to the Holy Isle today so I decide to take Tommy on a walkabout before it gets  too busy and do our own bit of sight seeing.  We visit the beach in front of St Cuthbert’s Island where his beads are to be found.

and behind us is the church of St Mary

Then we do a circuit round the church

And the ruined Priory

After a little more walking about and chatting to the locals, I take him back to his paddock.
