Penzance this morning

Just as I was setting off to go to Penzance for some shopping I noticed that three RIBs  were well on their way from the Isles of Scilly - carrying passengers who had been fog bound over there. As I arrived I could see that Lightning has already arrived and was awaiting her return passengers
A misty Scillonian III
Passengers waiting for their allotted boat
Off went Lightning
You can see how foggy it was
Suddenly spotted Boatman Tim Fortey proud owner of Calypso II our boat of choice when we're over on Scilly
Off he went down the long set of steps(due to the low tide) and onto Falcon
Big Seal suddenly appeared, but then just as suddenly disappeared
Lots of luggage to be carried down the steps and stowed away
 More cabin seats on Falcon

One out and one in - Pegasus arriving


All loaded up and off they went - they all got to Scilly turned around and came back with another load of passengers - turned around and went back - busy day !
Inter-island goods boat Lyonesse Lady now looking very smart after her time in dry-dock and waiting to return to Scilly - AIS off so don't know if she's gone yet
