Took a boat trip around the island.
Bardsey Island August 1999
Today we went for a boat trip around the island, which I hadn't done before. A great opportunity to see bits of the island from different angles.
A view looking back along Bardsey from past the tip.
Mainly Mynyth Enlli.
So this is me...
Heres the end of the island with the lighthouse.
The little rock where the seals go to rest sometimes.
I look a bit seasick here! I wasn't honest!
A collection of interesting seabirds gather here...
Here we face the bay where we slept sunday night.
Well you can't really see herr, but Janie (who doesn't like boat journeys much) was standing on the cliff here waving at us.
Demonstrating how steeply one side of the mountain drops away into the sea.
Can't really remember what everyone was looking at here...
Some of the other boat passengers...
Back on land for us, but back out to sea for the boat, going back to the mainland to pick up more day visitors.
How now, errr, black cow. This cow produces milk for the farm.
Me in a fairly pretentious picture. Still I quite like it anyway.
Alex gets in on it too.
After lunch we went for a second fishing expedition. Alex seemed to be a natural, and in minutes we'd caught this rather fetching fish.
A close up of Alex's fish.
Theres a shrimp in there somewhere.
Big shrimp and little shrimp. They didn't seem to get on too well.
And another fish.
Later on that evening we had a quick trip to the well before going to bed.
