Saturday was a very important day for us, our 5 year anniversary from our 2nd wedding (the religious one). So we decided to go see the seals from Hilbre Islands, within the Dee Estuary. The starting point was West Kirby beach, as you can see, the last time we went there the tide was high and the islands were unreachable by foot.
Rain was the first thing we saw. Pretty nice to watch, less nicely if you want to go on the river bay. But, fortunately, it didn’t rained to much. We started the 2 miles walk to the islands. On Festus’s blog I put more pictures of him at the Islands.
The sand was a little wet, but I managed to cross to the Islands fine with my running shoes. But if you want to cross the river bay and you have some Wellingtons, wear them.
It was an amazing trip and we all loved it. A perfect way to spend our anniversary.
We were on the Islands for a few hours, so we didn’t had time to prepare a cake (and we had already a lot of muffins). So, we kept it simple: stuffed eggs, aubergine and mayonnaise salad, grilled halumi with apache potatoes (they look different, but they are very tasty), baked with olive oil and salt.
