    Welcome to H-Island! This is a secret spot we discovered a while ago. If you are really interested what island it is, feel free to email me. Why am I not publishing the whole name of that place? Well, first of all it is somewhat dangerous (see second last picture – these are actual stairs you have to walk on – one mistake and you are flying) – also it is privat land and you need to ask permission of the farmer to walk over his land. It’s all gated ! And last reason … The seals …. We already feel very bad to scare that seal so badly. In fact it was all fine until I started taking pictures with my medium format camera. Poor seal – it probably thought it was a gun or something.

    Back in the days you could make a couple of easy bucks for killing seals and trading in seals heads for 4 pounds each. But still – fishermen are still hating seals. They estimate that every seals eats 1.000 pounds worth of fish. Not sure how they come up with that number … POUNDS! It’s Euros now! …

    Yesterday was spring tide so we finally managed to walk out on our local Island ….

    It was awesome … a whole Island to ourselves – well almost. It was really beautiful, we saw our first seals and Mike managed to collect his dinner – Mussels (Yikes)!

    I wanna go back there!

    There was an other dude, he was not going for the island but was after some mussels. We were very impressed on his water crossing technique – 2 heavy duty trash bags he put on when it was getting to wet.

    And there was this friendly guy (also after mussels) who pointed us out where was the best place to cross for the island… which you can see in the background. I also managed to rake some portraits of him with my medium format camera.

    There were sheep on the Island which surprised us …

    We had 3 hours on the island … than it was time to go again, because we didn’t feel like swimming back 😉

    The seal video …. it’s very far away .. there were a group of 5 seals hunting for salmon.

    What a day … we will make this our monthly routine … can’t wait for the summer to camp out there!

    Not really sure what to think of it …. this video only shows one site. But for me the question is … why building a gas pipe before building better streets!
