The Longest Day

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

After a few rain showers earlier in the day the evening ended in a glorious sunset ending on a pleasant warm eveing with the air very still and a dead calm sea…..perfect! With the tide in, it was an ideal evening to have a gentle stroll around the harbour and take in the delights that the uniqueness of Holy Island always delivers. Whether you just enjoy a peaceful stroll, capturing the “perfect light” so sought after by photographers or artists alike you realise how special Holy Island is.

Swifts, swallows and many other birds feeding on the evening insect life, so abundant at this time of the year and with the occasional “clang sound” ¬†from the boats moored on the anchor chains is something to behold. Let’s just hope with the main months of Summer now with us that there are many more wonderful days ahead on Holy Island especially when the tide is in and the island delivers what it does best……. tranquility! so very rare these days.

Food Items Not To Forget!

And on a final note, the photo showing a shopping list with this little editorial probably sums it all up which was found on the harbour’s edge. Let’s get away and relax. Perfect!

Valentine’s Weekend Guests – Enjoy A Memorable Stay At The Ship Inn

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Another Valentines celebration over with all rooms taken for that romantic weekend break. On checkout all of our guests said that the weekend had been really special, with the male fraternity made up of husbands, partners, or simply boyfriends who politely whispered that their wallets were now a little lighter after treating the lady who is a little bit special in their lives! Whether it was a classic champagne or a sparkling Brut (and that’s not the male element of the equation!) corks were heard popping across the restaurant and bar floors. As the guests finished their main course a popular end to the meal was The Ship Inn’s special dessert, “Loved Up Fruits”. Prepared by Chef Paul, this consisted of fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries all enveloped in a liqueur base of Drambuie, Cointreau and Grand Marnier. This turned out a winner with all that chose it as their dessert selection.
