So Cute

By ianrobinson    
This image of a cute Puffin was taken on Teusday 9th july on the wonderful Island of Skomer, Pembrokeshire.
After doing research about this place and how to get there we ended up getting up at 4.30am to get in the queue for 5am, we were second in the queue at this time and soon after there was a sizeable queue behind us, the ticket office opened at 8am by 7am the queue was so big that many people did not get a ticket as there is a first come first serve senario and a max of 250 tickets are sold per day.
It is a 10 min boat trip to Skomer Island which leaves at 10am 11am and 12pm you are left for 4 hours on the Island then the boat trip back .
Although it is a pain and a long day it certainly is well worth the effort to see the lovely flowers and Puffins in there natural environment, another bucket list covered for me.
