Fluffy hug

28 July 2014
It's a bit of a grey day, quite a change from the scorching weather of last week.  For several days the island was bathed in glorious sunshine that highlighted just how beautiful it is.  I decided to make the most of the weather and headed down to the beach for a paddle.  The water was unbelievably clear and I could see small fish swimming around me!

It was fun while it lasted but within an hour a fog bank moved in forming a fluffy hug around the Island

While the fog obliterated the view over to Dun it created some spectacular formations as the mist spilled over the cliffs of Oiseval and rolled down the Gap.Mist spilling over the Gap
