Going Home

Our time on Straddie has come to an end for another year. In the late afternoon, of our last holiday day, there was time for one last walk along my favourite beach. It was low tide. The sand was golden and wide and the sea quieter. I whispered my goodbyes to the land and the sea. And, as I always do, I promised myself I would come back next year.

One of the barges that takes people to and from the island.

Our barge leaves the island.

Goodbye, Straddie. I miss you already!

Too far to swim back now.

The mainland awaits.
