Island

This would be my perfect island! It would consist of the following: fast flowing river for riverside walks, waterfalls, deciduous woodland for walks and picnics, surfing beaches, nature reserve where I can pick samphire and watch the birds, mushroom fields, blackberry patches, sand dunes and coves, a 5 minute passenger ferry to the mainland, bakers, butchers, fishmongers, grocers, hardware store, stationers, deli, boutique, beaches for stone collecting, rock pools, good food pub, fish restaurant, hills, cliff top walks with My Jack Russell, places to collect cockles and mussels, fishing, pub for pints of magners, stone cottage with outdoor baking oven, separate art studio, veg garden and orchard with cherries, plums, apples and pears, walnut trees, sandy beaches for swimming and lying in the sun, 3 months Spring, 4 months Summer, 3 months Autumn, 2 months Winter, dolphins, whales, butterflies, flowers - I don't want much do I?!
