Room with a view

 

During our recent holiday on Tresco, one of the Isles of Scilly, we were fortunate to have accommodation that looked out across the channel separating Tresco from Bryher.   The crossing of the channel at the times of the Spring tides was shown in an earlier post.  (See    https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2018/10/23/spring-tide-adventurers/)

The first photo shows the view from the lounge  The second and third were taken from the patio and show the views to the left and right.   In the second photo it is just possible to see the top of the steps leading from the patio to the beach/

The mystery beneath the waves

It is a strange feeling to stand at the water’s edge at Holme-next-the-Sea and, as the waves break gently on the beach,try to imagine the scene 4000 years ago.  This is the beach where a Bronze Age community created a sacred edifice  we refer to as Seahenge.

What were these people like?  What was their life lije?  What were their beliefs?

What further mysteries lie hidden beneath the waves?

What conclusions might distant future generations form about life in  Norfolk in 2018?
