In January we had a sunny day but the wind was ice cold. I ventured out to take photos from the coast. This island with its ruined castle is magical on clear days. Wrapped up I took some photos and the reward was a hint of sun, a reminder of summer on its way, just 113 days.
Landmarks often depict an era, a period of time and historic relevance. Here is a photograph of a historic island and castle that dates back to the 12th century. It has been documented that this island, in the background, has been inhabited by Celts, Romans, Monks from Normandy during the rein of King Stephen and a port to German fleets of Lambert Simnel in the 15th century.
Today the island can be seen juxtaposed by the modern lifeboat station and small pier with the island in the near distance, calmly waiting for the next adventure to begin.
