Friday

 Scillonian III leaving for Scilly later than usual due to the Spring Tides.  Only a little over a month until she's finished until the Spring
I took the dogs down to the beach - really massive beach 
Skybus Islander on a scenic tour  came right past the beach - must have looked wonderful from up there
We walked along the beach towards Trevean 
No running about today 
Just some paddling 
Wonderful view of The Mount over Maen-dhu Point 
  

People sitting on the seats looking at The Mount 

I did let Tilly off several times, but each time she shot off in the wrong direction 
Haven't seen the hole in the cliff at the Western end of the beach since the Spring 
Don't think it's got any bigger 
Amazingly calm sea this morning 
Some good people were doing a beach clean and found an old tyre that left a trail like a giant slug 
Windserver platform on its way to the Rhyl Offshore Wind Farm 
Lovely sky as we set off on our afternoon walkies
  
Looking into the sun - Gry Maritha on her way to Scilly with Wolf Rock lighthouse just visible 

Very muddy patch  of footpath - fortunately you can turn down onto the little field alongside


Home in time for the last barbecue - was rather cold out there but the spiced chicken cooked well and tasted good.
Sadly although this barbecue hasn't been used much this year it's time it went to the tip as the burner is getting rusty and the knobs don't work 
Setting sun started to colour the high cloud all round the bay 
Sun going down as the gulls stream out to sea 

This sky was right behind the pine trees, so had to go along the drive - just shows how the right light can even make an ugly poolhouse roof look good

    1. It was a really super day - sadly it's rained all day today. The poor barbecue hasn't been used as much as usual and it was its second year - sadly they just tend to rust away. Hopefully dry tomorrow but no sun expected. Sue

    1. Just a pity that we seem to just get one day - then back to rain. We try to enjoy the good days we have. Sue
