Burgh Island, Bigbury

I had the pleasure of going away this weekend for s surprise 30th birthday party. My friend Sam didn’t know that a number of us were travelling down to Ivybridge for the weekend to surprise him, it was a great time to catch up with several friends I hadn’t seen for a while.

Part of Saturday was spent taking the many dogs for a walk at Bigbury and to take in Burgh Island in the process. The island become completely cut off at high tide, but when the tide goes out a beach connects it to the mainline. While the four dogs were taking various members of our party for a walk, I pulled my iPhone out my pocket and took a few snaps. I kind of wish I had my proper camera with me, but I’m still pretty please with how they turned out. Despite all the weather and low cloud, the place felt really calm and peaceful, hopefully my photos have caught some of that.

Nice day in Bath with my Dad while Mum was at the world textile day. Got to the Roman Baths for the first time, recommended.

Israel 2014

Way back in September I had the pleasure of visiting Israel for the second time in my life. It’s place I have a real passion for, so rich in history, so beautiful in scenery and of course because of my faith as a Christian. This being my second trip to Israel I didn’t take quite as many photos as I did the first time around, but I have finally had chance to go through a number of the ones I did take and wanted to take this opportunity to share them with you.
