View From St Catherine's Island

Today Jo and I had a nice day out in Tenby; Nanny took the kids out for the day somewhere far away :)

The tide was out and St Catherine's Island was open for visitors.    It has been shut for very many years, but restoration of the fort on the top of the island has now started and the steps and way up has been made safe.

The view from the top is a different way to see Tenby; for once you can see the houses and hotels with all their funky colours from a similar height, rather than looking up at an oblique angle from the beach.

There are still some nice rusty and rotten structures on the island however that make for interesting photographs :)

The boats in the harbour are thinning out as the years progress and the fish stocks dwindle further, but there are still some interesting working boats to capture pictures of still.
