Boxing Day

The Point of Ayr: the most northerly part of mainland * Wales, where the estuary of the river Dee meets the sea

and a light house once marked the spot

and shone one light west towards Wales

and another east where the silted up shore of one country meets the sand banks of the other.

Salt marches and sand dunes rise now

guarded by a tin man

as blind, mute and dim as the stars in the sea.

*= added later. Many thanks to Richard Carter (see comments).

Great photos. (But the north coast of Anglesey is farther north!)

Thanks Richard - and you're right about Anglesey too... I shall amend to read mainland Wales.
