 Wonderful Valerian - sadly no butterflies
Bottlebrush flower with Wisteria behind at Church Farmhouse
Looking a bit grey, but it was trying to brighten up

More and more flowers out at Maen-dhu Point every day
So sad to see an empty beach - they ban dogs far too early in the season
I needed to go to the Vets in Penzance, so parked in the Harbour car park to go and take some photos - here is Gry Maritha unloading one of the many gigs that are coming back after the championships
Went to take a look at Gry Maritha's replacement that arrived last night. She's called Mali Rose and is 50m long built in 1992 - she certainly won't be winning any prizes for looks and she looked huge against the road
No idea what this part is for 
Her bow - you can see how big she is next to the huge grey vessel called Vega that is just to her right
Felt quite sad for Gry Maritha - gather she will be off to Ireland

Another gig on the way down
Penzance Harbour.
Sadly just before dog walking time, it started to rain - so I went for a swim instead


  1. Dear Sue,
    thanks again for all the wonderful pictures, very impressing and also informative. Under one of the pictures showing the new ship "Mali Rose" for the Scillies you write:"No idea what this part is for!" It reminded me at first glance of a concrete pump, and it is a pump, but not for concrete. It's for Salmon Feed. On the funnel of the machine you see the picture of a Salmon. The old homeport of "Mali Rose" is Bronnoysund in Norway, and nearby in the Fjords are several Salmon Farms.
    Hurtigruten stops at Bronnoysund and one of their excursions go to a Salmon Farm.
    So, I think that's the explanation.
    See you soon, we are back to lovely Perranuthnoe at teh beginning of June.

    1. Many thanks Gerd - one of my Scillonian friends said he thought it was to do with a fish farm - so almost right "! Just realised that you arrive in Perranuthnoe the day before we leave for Scilly - we're gone for 10 days so might see you when we return. Sue

  2. Again about "Mali Rose". The ship was working for "EWOS" now Cargill, one of the world's biggest suppliers of feed and nutrition for fish. The "Mali Rose" operated in Norway, transporting fish feed, so quite clear that there is need of alteration in the Penzance dockyard. Enough info.
    See you soon.
