Holy Island – Lindisfarne 2013

On the 10th June 2013…

Although the Spring came five weeks later this year, every single minute of it was a joy. At the end of May we decided to go to Holy Island, Lindisfarne.

This is truly a magical place, as when the tide is high, the causeway is closed and the island becomes partially isolated. The wildlife is rich and some rare birds can be seen on Holy Island from time to time.

Its history is also fantastic. We were about to watch the TV series Vikings when we went to Holy Island and some of the locals told us more about the Vikings history and their raids on Lindisfarne.

Nothing could be better, apart of my hayfever crisis on the island!
