Waiting for our lunch at the beach cafe at Bigbury yesterday, where we strolled on the beach for a couple of hours with our son's dog - it was such a beautiful day, bit cold but the walk warmed us up (as did the all day breakfast afterwards Wink).

This is my first gallery upload for ages - post-Christmas loss of mojo is all I can put it down to. But the sun is shining now and I think I can almost smell spring in the air (it'll probably snow tonight now I've said that!).

Incidentally, Bigbury has a little offshore island, Burgh Island , famous for its association with Agatha Christie. The 'island' in my title, however, is the etching on the foot of the tables - the full inscription was 'Fire Island' which I can only assume refers to the barrier island near Long Island, New York - maybe a brand of beach furniture? Who knows?

Thanks for looking.

Reminding me of an Escher illusion with all the wooden platforms scattered at different heights and depths

Thanks Tim, Moira, Barbara and Carol. I'm feeling very humble in accepting your votes and comments as I've hardly looked at the gallery since before Christmas - that is going to change Smile.

Great pattern picture, Theresa, and as said above, good use of the Lensbaby to concentrate the eye on the word.

Superb selective focus & very artistic composition on this image rendering, Theresa, demonstrating complexity, as in an abstract,...& excellent light, color, & clarity. Well done.
