Sunday

 Another grim morning - at least all the weeds on the top field at Trebarvah seem to be loving the weather - the grass they seeded isn't doing that well - owing to too many weeds he he !

 Still a very wild sea on a windy morning
 Just a quick shot from Trebarvah as I went to check that Oamaru Barn ws ready for some visitors tomorrow
 Rather odd split in the clouds this afternoon
 I went into Penzance to wait for Scillonian III to arrive back from her last trip of the season. This large boat had just been lifted out
 In the wet dock there was still some timbers from the old Jolly Roger boat that had sunk last week - and they had placed a boom around the big grey ugly monster (called a Super yacht in The Cornishman ! !)
 More of the Jolly Roger
 and the mast which was already broken on the landing craft Terramere
 Looking over the top of Lighthouse Pier I spotted the Hake boat Ajax just arriving back - plenty on the market tomorrow
 First sighting of Scillonian III appearing out of the gloom
 I had realised by where the shore crew were that she would be coming straight in to Albert Pier - for shelter
 Slow turn in a nasty swell

 Bit of a roll
 I was standing next to Ross Bridge to be able to see her arrive & turn
 In she comes - nice and slow
 and slowly starts to turn into the harbour

 That's it for another year !  I assume they'll try to find room for her in the wet dock soon
 Very odd light as we walked the dogs this afternoon - at least the rain had stopped

  1. Well done Sue for capturing the last 2015 arrival of Scillonian on a murky November afternoon. Knew we could rely on you!
    Haven't been able to get down as we have moved into our new home in Somerset. Hoping to fit in a quick visit before Christmas. Jane.

    1. Wasn't a very nice day and I forgot to say that it was pouring with rain as she arrived back - fortunately it was on my back and I'd worn a waterproof jacket ! Had a lovely chat with Richard Pearce's Bryher Postie and his wife, who had come over the day before.
      Do hope you enjoy your new life in Somerset - my sister had just moved from Bristol to Liskeard and is loving every minute of it ! Sue
