 Last few Cauliflowers from around the fields
 Rather a grey day

Watch this space - one bungalow gone - new build will soon start I expect 

Jim then had to drive up the narrow road that runs along the hill behind Marazion - with superb views
Looking towards Penzance with Marazion Marsh in between

Afternoon walkies - still rather grey

Oil products tanker Amorea still at anchor in the bay

The end of a very long day !

Scillonian III entering dry dock Penzance this morning

 There she was on Albert Pier - ready to go
Dock gates opening
Scillonian III reversed then round she came
and in through the gaps
Right across the dry dock pool
Right over to Abbey Warehouse

Tug Danmark starting to gently push her round
I realised when I moved that the shadowy figure on SCIII is me !

Straightened her up and in she went

Danmark heading out - time for me to head home for breakfast - didn't realise until I turned around that it was drizzling - fortunately it had been on my back not the camera. 3 Videos posted below

Scillonian III going into the Dry Dock Penzance

I had been wondering whether to get up very early to watch Scillonian III go innto dry dock as I've never seen it happen. My brain decided for me by waking me up at 4.45am. So I got up had a quick coffee and left the dogs snuggles under their blankets. Was worth the effort !
A little bit of scraping along the sides as she came through the narrow gaps
In she went - time to head home for breakfast

Rather grey this morning, but it was dry, so Tilly was wearing her jumper to keep warm
 Blue sky appearing
Wooster pleased to meet his "girls"

Strange to see one of our Hottentot Figs flowering
The Schizostylis keep flowering throughout the Winter
From the front door at Oamaru Barn - some nice colour, but lots of dark clouds so I gave Jim a ring to warn him - just in case they were bringing rain
Off he went with the dogs

Strange light
It's always a wonderful view even on a chilly grey afternoon

Just one dog & owner on the beach
Tilly doing her "meet and greet" job
All ready for tomorrow
