Yes Flat Holm again but a chilly day and the promise of a warm in the farm house was too tempting. Heavy snow fell on Friday and has remained frozen in a white state since. The wind forecast looked great for the coming week, so the plan was to paddle out to the two Holms and get a few shots of them in the snow.Taran, not to early for a change, at Sully. This was our first meeting with Gareth and Andrew and their first trip out to the islands.
I didn't get this snow out there, this was from the weekend after I dug my boat out this morning.
Time was pressing on so we opted for a lazy trip to Flat Holm rather than rush around both islands. We did a lap of the island before landing on Coal Beach. I assume the name of the beach derives from the tons of coal that were landed on the island to fuel the coal-fired braziers of the original light.
I was desperate to get moving again and warm up.
