Bel endroit pour se promener avec un banc pour se reposer.
Alan: Its a beautiful spot to rest and enjoy the view.

Let us sit down on this bench and enjoy this sandy beach! I learnt today the new word 'tombolo'.
Alan: Ah now before we sit down and enjoy the view, let's have a walk around the island first; then we can sit down smile I'd not heard of "tombolo" before, either.

Did you risk walking that crowded beach?
Alan: Luckily, I had just returned from a walk around the island and made to avoid the heaving mass of humanity.
That's a name that sounds like it could be in the Narnia Chronicles, Alan!
Alan: Hahah!! Yes you could be right!

This looks very inviting after our walk, Alan. You lead the way. This is wonderful.
Beach is a bit crowded
This is rich with associations for me, Alan. When I toured Scotland in the late 70s, I sojourned at St. Ninian's Centre, a conference facility for the Church of Scotland. Some of the best times of my life. I had no idea there was an island named for Ninian. Thank you for bringing out cherished memories.

Your mastery of the snapshot has triumphed again Alan.
Looks like a fabulous spot with the ocean on both sides. I know a person named Ninian.
Great lone seat shot, they don't come in much better placs than that.
Nice compo, Alan.
