Bardsey Island Ferry

Bardsey Island Ferry
This is the arrival of the Bardsey Island ferry at Porth Meudwy on the Llyn Peninsula. The ferry operates at all states of tide. The boatman exhibits incredible skill as he sails the ferry into the cradle, jumps from boat to tractor then pulls it onto the beach or up the slipway. The island in the background is Ynys Gwylan-fawr.

Many thanks Steve. Must admit I wouldn't fancy it on a windy day. The island is a site of pilgrimage and so the boatman's leaflet says they can accommodate disabled access. Not sure how, but possibly using a bigger boat with a ramp that was hauled up on the island.
