TO THE ISLAND....

No, this is not a critique of Meaghan Delahunt`s novel but a wistful look back to the golden days of late summer, when we happened once again to be staying at Bigbury-on-Sea in south Devon.   And naturally we start to walk the coast path in each direction - to the east lies Bantham, Thurlestone, Hope Cove and Bolt Head but the walk westwards starts off perhaps less propitiously, involving the negotiation of the Challaborough holiday park with its serried ranks of chalets, caravans and assorted `amenities.` 

But keep going and soon the climb towards Ayrmer Cove rewards you with this panoramic view back to the tidal causeway to Burgh Island.  I`ve tried to make my photo have something of a `Lowry` feel to it, with the matchstick figures coming and going before the tide cuts either the Island or the mainland off from civilization for a few hours.  I`m never quite sure which.......
