Timeline: Sunday 6.00am alarm for a 7.30am check in at Bideford to catch the Oldenberg for a sailing to Lundy Island for the ‘Air Day Hooray’. The airstrip on Lundy dates back to at least 1934 when Atlantic Coasts Air Lines flew tourist flights to the island from the airfield at Chivenor, near Barnstaple. These […]

Lundy with Liz

Back to the rock for what I think is my 25th stay on the island, and to celebrate I’ve come with one veteran and two Lundy virgins. This time to Stoneycroft and it’s magical electricity thing… Crucifixion? One cross each… First sight of the Stoney Croft from the  helicopter.. Here’s Liz, not looking too comfortable, […]

Beautiful North Devon Calendar 2022

November 18, 2021

It’s that time of year again. Over the last month I have trawled through all the photos that I’ve taken in the last year and chosen thirteen for the new Calendar. It’s always difficult to envisage what the final product will look like until you actually hold one in your hand. So it was a […]

Pink Lundy

Lundy in the unseasonably cold month of May and it’s full of the bells, the blue bells (as witnessed in the previous post) but not just them. There is also another harbinger of summer;  the iconic coast-path flower, sea thrift, the prettiest pink ever. Also known as sea pinks, or the cliff rose, cushion pinks, sea […]

Blue Lundy

  With umpteen visits and ‘stays’ on Lundy over the last (hhummty) years, it seems that I have never had a May stopover, which seems logical as it’s a very busy time for the last of the serious surf contests and, preparation for the start of the holiday season in North Devon. Both have ran […]

All around your hat

An impromptu portrait session within minutes of landing on the island. David and Majorie sitting on a bench, and as ever with portraits, it’s all about the props. In this case – it’s the Lundy hat, bar tat. Oooooh, David. Fujilove

Lundy Rona: What’s hot, n’not.

October 18, 2020

It’s been an unusual summer in more ways than one way but hardest to bare has been the lack of opportunist day, and camping trips, to Lundy Island. The Motor Ship (MS) Oldenburg, that normally packs 267 people on board, is now limited to 90 due to social distancing restrictions and unless you have booked […]

Coos on the doorstep, seals in the combe and deer in the quarry.

The March trip to Lundy was an ideal time for testing my new bit of Fujifilm kit; the 200 mm f2. It comes with a matched 1.4x extender and is meant to be ‘stepping- razor’ sharp and all the lab charts agree, but is it ‘dangerous’ in a real world situation. Like in a sodden, […]

The Wind

The March 2020 trip to Lundy was very windy, ffffht, but when is it not? Even on a still day at the beaches of north Devon, it is windy on Lundy. So when it’s windy on Lundy, it’s really windy – it’s like being in a viking battle, or worse. The wind claws at you […]
