Off to Bardsey Island!

Off to Bardsey Island!

I am off for my yearly time of peace on Bardsey Island / Ynys Enlli for a few days of quiet time.  To spend time singing with the seals (and they sing back!) and bird-watching.  What a unique place – no electricity, cars –  and no phone signal!  This has been a special place of pilgrimage for hundreds of years – three visits to Bardsey were equivalent of one to Rome.  The tidal race that runs between the island and the mainland can be frightening, especially on a spring tide!
