Cramond Island isn’t entirely an island when the tide rolls out each day, allowing you to walk the causeway from the mainland. But as the tide rolls back in, the island is cut off once again—and it’s fairly common for people to turn around and find themselves stranded, if they aren’t watching the time.
Walking the perimeter along the shoreline, I crossed this pair of kayakers. I asked, “You gentlemen mind if I get a photo of you enjoying your lunch?”
“Only if you think you’ll want to look at it later,” the neon-green beanied fellow laughs.
