I was lucky enough to have been out to Seymour Tower this weekend for an overnight stay. It's a sea defence tower over a mile out to sea on Jersey's south east corner, which you can walk to on very large tides with a guide. Built in 1782 it was the last square to be built and after they used a round design which is stronger. The weekend consited of a fair hike to start then drop the gear off, collect our whistles and go for a bit of low water fishing for Lobster! I did some sand art later as the tide returned and the conditions for kite flying where great, got some super shots. Once the tide worked it's way back up the guy's went of plugging for Bass. Then had an awsome meal of new spuds and succulent Duck breast with a Moroccan twist and a couple of nice reds.. Sun set was stunning and the Moon rise was like nothing I'd seen....it was more Orange than the Sun set.
I woke up at 4.45 ish for dawn and a walk, not far as the tide was on the push again. The peace and light of the area at that time was breathtaking. A few hours later the kite was out again and bacon and sausage bagettes all round. Then it was time to clean up and head home. All the photos are on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jersey-Sandman/156088634497258 If you every have the opportunity to do this trip jump at it such a treat. I would like to thank everyone involved for a fantastic time and I look forward to going again.
