Asparagus Island, as seen from the top of Samphire Island. For Pam.

Asparagus Island, as seen from the top of Samphire Island. For Pam.
There's no obvious way up to the top of this island but once you know it (I followed a family who explained they picnicked here once a year - on their annual holiday - and had done so since before the last war!), it's a doddle! You can see a mine shaft and an adit or two on the opposite cliff.

A wonderful view from up there...........especially of the fine detail in the cliffs opposite. Some great wave action going on around Asparagus Island and of course, the colour of the water is just sublime!

WOW!! That was a trek to get there, but would you just LOOK at that view?!!! WOOOOT!!! Gorgeous! How special to find this spot, lucky that you could follow that family up here. How interesting to see a mine shaft surrounded by waves! CRAZY! I love the clarity and details of your picture too. :)

I can't help thinking just how dangerous it was to dig these mines. Even getting to the entrance requires a tricky manouevre or three, even if they came to it by boat with all their equipment. I expect these shafts and adits were exploratory and that they didn't find anything!
