Well if this thread is still going.... Let's go back 6 years.... You can blame the front page posting of this thread for my discovery of it...

Didn't have a film camera, but did have a problem with.... tides... :runaway:

Caption contest anyone?



Haha!! He was hit by a wave whilst taking photo's during Storm Frank last week!! I shouldn't let him go anywhere near the sea without a responsible adult ;):ROFLMAO:

It could happen to anyone .....

Well I do like to give my friends a chuckle.... about every 3 or 4 months. :D

I see it as my civic duty to warn people of the dangers.

The thing that annoys me most is that when I drove over to the island there were no signs warning of the tide times..... they sneakily put them up in the 6 hours I was stuck there, very unfair. :whistle:

Andy -. As you , rightly point out there is not a lot t do on the Isle! Putting the sign up in a variety of cunning ways is the main occupation of residents! There is a rota and family honour at stake for the most inconspicuous signage!

Seeing as Easter may be looming on the horizon, when folk will do all sorts of strange things, I thought this was worth a quick revival (also, it was on p2 or p3, can't have that!).

It's still a wonderful reviver, thanks @Andysnap !:banana::)

Yes I believe that Holy Island is known to look beautiful at this time of Year, particularly when surrounded by a high tide:ROFLMAO:

We could always have a f&c rally round to buy Andy a tide table:D

I had MrsMcG read this thread as a warning for her too.

After I explained that this incident occurred in 2014 and that it keeps surfacing she's decided we're all evil.

Obviously a very wise woman. (y)

Did Andy ever tell you about the time he went to visit the Holy Isle and only found the tide times when he was on the Island?
I won't spoil it. I'll leave for him to tell it some time.

You will be happy to learn that all is well, no major incidents to report. We decided to stay inland this year just to be on the safe side. ;)

You mean he's actually worth something?:p

With that lot on, might he then be vulnerable to members of Greenpeace trying to drag him back into the water after mistaking him for some sort of beached marine mammal?
Won't be the first time that's happened to me on a beach, I often have to move to let the tide in. :D

Who said anything about Andy being valuable? Replacement Wista's don't come cheap...
We should perhaps be careful, if we give him much more grief he might replace it with an AK47! And before anyone goes down the obvious banter route, no he wouldn't take better photos with one of those!
