Yesterday we walked at low tide but, unlike in summer when at low tide we can walk the length of the bay, today we couldn’t get past the first point west. When the tides are lower in depth and you gauge it right the whole bay is accessible, but you really need to know the tide times as there are points along the beach where the return tide comes in quickly, cutting you off and we do occasionally see the coastguard helicopter hovering above the cliff lifting someone who hasn’t been prepared for the water to return so quickly.
So we looked in the caves with pools left by the tide.
We checked out the mussels, they will grow over the coming months and we will pick for early summer suppers
Then on the return leg we stopped at the large flat stone, which acts as a bench, to look back east along the bay.
and to look at the light on the water
