Day at Lindisfarne

A travel blog entry by kathmom


... the causeway to get to the island is covered by the North Sea twice a day. There are places to stay there, and a little refuge shack above a ladder at the causeway if you figured wrongly about the tide, but for a quick trip around the island, we did have time to spare enough to look around and even have decent weather.
