Fantastic day had by all, young and old, at Lundy Island.

Only here for the weekend but rally enjoyed the boat trip
over for the day. West Down kindly arranged the day with

Early Breakfast and late dinner. Makes every holiday special.


"Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean
meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a
granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide.
In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt."
