Northumberland, Farne Islands, Sunset Cruise - 15th May 2014


What could be better than a sunset cruise around the Farne Islands? We boarded Serenity II skippered by Andrew Douglas, Facebook friend and fellow blogger, The Farne Islands. The sea was very calm, allowing us to get very close to the cliffs and the action and smells of the huge seabird colonies.
