Early evening at the lighthouse


After the trip to the island yesterday when the causeway was clear of water , we checked the tide times and decided it would be fun to return when the tide was due in and escape just in time as we had heard that the water comes across fast once it starts .
We drove first to Seaton Delavel for the famous ice cream that tastes like Ambrosia creamed rice , then more clambering about on the rocks near the lighthouse .
Laura thought she saw a seal in the water and after a few minutes of staring out to sea and seeing nothing , we began messing about and posing for silly photos . At the point the seal re appeared , and we all saw it several times as it bobbed about off shore its round head well out of the water . We were all over excited and I took several pictures of the water but sadly the seal bobbed down each time it saw the lens . Finally we took thirty or forty pictures of us pratting about and then various shots of the waves swirling fast across the causeway . Probably sounds daft but we had a great time imagining we could have been trapped on the island and leaving it till the last possible moment to leave .
A future plan is to take a picnic and some towels and stay there whilst the tide comes in . According to the tides timetable we would only be there around three hours before the tide goes out again .
