The gap that you can see is not the real entrance to the harbour. To exit by boat you would take a sharp turn to the left but only when the tide is high. Thanks for your visit fai. Bob

Bob I read you were going to visit this harbour and see it is well worth it! Congratulations.. Guess the water gets higher with the tide? In 1995 I took a shot of Whitehaven harbour where all the boats were stuck in the mud due to the low tide, it is something spectacular as I never thought of the water going so far away. Greetings

You're right Antonietta, the tide plays big part in things nautical around this area. You can lose over 5 metres of water from high tide to low, which means this harbour is mud at low tide and nothing moves. The nearby Saint Mary's lighthouse is on an island at high tide and belongs to the mainland at low. Best wishes, Bob

Jurgis, it's so nice when someone is inspired. The English lake district in 2010 is your next goal. Best wishes, Bob
