Around the Farne Islands


October 2018

A surprise opportunity  arose to go out to the islands on an evening tide with a group of ‘free swimmers’ - there were seals all around!

A stiff NE wind created choppy waters but we found shelter in a small bay.  Then for 30 minutes or more while the swimmers bobbed around among the seals and rock outcrops I sat in the boat drawing.  Next time I’ll take a wetsuit!

I remember swimming with grey seals in the Scilly Isles 10 years ago so  have included some of those drawings.
