The Holy Island of Lindisfarne

Recycling is hardly new as the folks of Lindisfarne have been doing so with old boat hulls for a very long time.

For more information about one of the places I would wish to retire, please follow this link.  There is a connecting path to the mainland that is flooded twice a day when the tides are high, a natural cycle that inspired Sir Walter Scott to compose the following verses:
For with the flow and ebb, its style
Varies from continent to isle;
Dry shod o'er sands, twice every day,
The pilgrims to the shrine find way;
Twice every day the waves efface
Of staves and sandalled feet the trace.
