1000/837: 05 June 2012; Lindisfarne's an island with an approach road that floods twice a day. Sadly I can't think of anything else to say about it.. The reviews go on about it's beauty and peace, and the spiritual nature of the place. Really? It was packed full of tourists and every spare space seemed to have been converted into a shop selling ersatz Celtabilia.

I guess it might be better when the tide is in, but I've seen plenty of more evocative ruins, and plenty of areas which better deserve the epithet 'beautiful and peaceful'. So all in all a bit of a disappointment. Plenty of spirit in evidence though - as this shot demonstrates. Can certainly recommend the mead, so in fairness to the Lindisfarne Winery maybe all was not lost.
Maybe I'll try again when it isn't a Bank Holiday.
