As the sun went down it just got better and better.
My Skywatch Friday photo.
Until there was finally very little left to see.
In the morning after breakfast
we walked into town for a closer look.
The island has been in the ownership of the St Aubyn family since the mid sixteen hundreds but it is now managed by the National Trust. At low tide it is accessible along a winding granite causeway.
But the tide was coming in
and we had just enough time to scramble onto the rocks where boats tie up to ferry visitors back and forth before that pathway also was covered by the incoming tide.
Then we jumped back onto the shore to watch the boats fill up with passengers.
