Lovely Lundy

I took these photos in August, whilst staying on the beautiful Lundy Island, off the coast of North Devon.

This is the Old Light at sunset, taken from the south west end of the Island. This seems to be quite a standard shot for people visiting Lundy, but I still think it's beautiful... The Old Light was the first lighthouse, and was built in the wrong place (too high when the fog comes in!)... there are now two more lighthouses- one at the North and one at the South, which still run today.

The following evening, we watched the sunset from the top of Old Light... stunning (and a little warm!!)

South Light, from the Castle Parade Ground... one of my favourite views on the island. We've stayed in the Castle both times we've visited Lundy, so this was the best spot for sitting in the sun and watching the world go by!

This is Jenny's Cove, home of the Lundy Puffins (not that we've visited early enough in the year to see them) and a notoriously difficult letterbox... oddly, we found this letterbox in about 5 minutes... we've read accounts of people hunting for hours!

If you ever have the opportunity, Lundy is beautiful, peaceful and well worth the visit. Even for me, who dreads the 2 hour crossing on the Oldenburg! There's nowhere quite like it!
