    Good old Northumbria.

  2. Is that an eider duck?!

  3. Such wonderful places, even though I struggle with the reason they were built, but I find myself able to almost worship Nature and existence and human endeavour while inside of them, but not any God of the kind that I was told of.

      The places are amazing and so is the craftsmanship that went into them.

      They ARE places for wondering and one of the things I wonder about is, exactly how they were constructed by people thought of as more primitive than humans today… Without our modern technology…

      Modern society seems to have lost some of those skills.

      • We could do it, we just choose not to. The masons and joiners who maintain the places have the skills, but there are much fewer of them around because more are not needed. There again, we do have people who, amazingly, can create and program microchips.

    How long did you stay on Lindisfarne?

    Surely you could not have seen all that in one tide?
