Fun in the Farnes

Although this is a fairly old image, I’ve been prompted recently to consider that people enjoy seeing the “fun” stuff that I’ve taken. Never have I had closer interactions with marine life than I did on 2 consecutive weekends in late 2011 when we visited first Lundy Island and then the Farne Islands… Pretty much …
