The Fort Walk

By Minty805
Crowds of people taking part in, or perhaps just observing, the annual Fort Walk to St Helens Fort, Isle of Wight. This regular event is unannounced and unofficial, with no actual organisation.
At the lowest tide of the year, the causeway between the shore at St Helens and this nearest to land of the four Solent forts, becomes walkable, or at least paddle-able.
The event has been going on for years, and seems to happen almost spontaneously, with estimates this year of somewhere around 1,000 people taking part on Saturday evening, the most popular time, thanks to the balmy evening, with a few more trying it on Sunday morning and evening low tides.
Grateful thanks for votes, comments and awards on my previous upload (pms sent).
Thanks for looking. Allan

I've not seen, or heard of, this fort. Looking on Google maps it looks quite well out at sea. Nearest I got to here was on a walk from Sandown to Bembridge (when I was a bit younger and fitter!). Certainly of lot of people doing this, and a fine capture Allan, working well as a panorama 😃👍🏻

It looks a very good idea to spend a balmy evening paddling, and also walking to the fort. Good presentation using a letterbox format for your image, it echoes the long walk to the fort.
