An unexpected find - # 08/116

If you get caught by the in-rushing high tide flooding across the road in yesterday's photo (and if the high tide is severe, watch out!!! - It will be up to your knees) you will have to make a quick detour up the rise of nature's natural embankment, now known as Sion Rd.

This row of 18th century houses (about 1720 I believe) is an unexpected find in such a place. But it is on higher ground and the old builders probably knew what they were doing. Notice that the white-walled house, closest to us, and lower down, has a set of steps up to its raised entrance.


  1. These buildings are just beautiful! Fortunately you found them! You sometimes have good surprises!

  2. Beautiful row of houses.
