To The Isles of Scilly.....

Having recently returned from another sailing trip, I thought I would share a few photos with you.  
I joined the yacht "Moonstone", a Westerly Konsort, in Weymouth and from there we made our way along the south coast, before setting off from Newlyn Harbour heading for the Isles of Scilly....which is somewhere that I have wanted to sail to for some time now.
The wind, tide and weather were all in our favour and we arrived at St Mary's well ahead of our schedule, but not before being entertained by the dolphins:

It may look like the Caribbean, but this is the Isles of Scilly!

There was a whole beach covered in these stone towers!

St Hugh's 
 After a few days exploring St Mary's we headed back to the mainland, this time making our way along the north coast of Cornwall then Devon.  

You see some amazing things!

I stepped ashore again in Clovelly and made my way up the narrow cobble street, to catch a bus at the visitors centre, 400m above the sea, to start my journey home.

Moonstone continues her journey around Britain and I may well join her again as she comes down the East coast.
