Across to Denham Bay

A quick note as there is a queue behind me for the internet.

After yesterday's dramatic start we decided to walk across the spine of the island to Denham Bay. It was a superb day, warm with a light easterly breeze - but that didn't stop me sweating copiously as we climbed. These tracks are steep!

Denham Bay is the site of the first home the Bell family built when they were here in the late 19th century. Much of the signs of their habitation have been swamped by tree growth but there are some magnificent old lime trees which the birds don't touch, for some reason. G'n'T was the drink of choice for the evening, then. Fresh limes- yum!

The bay looks like this: Denham Bay hut, with John Mc on the porch.

An old hulk rusting away quietly on the beach.
