 Scillonian III on her way to Scilly this morning - for a quick turnaround and back to Albert Pier on the high tide to keep her safe from Storm Brian - no trip tomorrow, but extra one on Sunday

Some work on the gardens and some people out on the balcony 
A great place for a photo 
Very low tide 
Said goodbye to the two lovely Bassett Hounds - heading home today - before Brian arrives

Nice beach 
But a lot of sand has been washed out by the storms 
From what I could see most of the seaweed had gone 
14 ½ years old and she jumped the puddle - been trying to get this shot for ages
Cherry Picker down the field to remove the last of the cables and old poles 
On a dull day these Shizostylis always look lovely and bright 
Seems Wooster doesn't know you should never turn your back on a horse 
He got a bump on his bottom  
So good to see that the edges of the footpath have been cut 
Nice view of the village 

Top of the hill at Trebarvah and the rain was approaching and got us before we got home

Here we go again - rain & wind on the way so I nipped out with the dogs
Yet again a line of low cloud out to the West 

All ready for the Western Power workmen who are connecting the new cable today 

Back down the hill to home 
Around 4pm I popped up to Oamaru to make sure that the power was back on  - and it was.  
Afternoon walkies - after one band of heavy rain there was more approaching.  
Dramatic lighting 
Not much time !
No easy to do a panorama on a hill in a raging gale - but Jim managed it ! 
Sea had got quite rough again 
Just a quick walkies 
Not much left of The Greeb with a rough sea and a Spring Tide 

Two more of Wooster's ladyfriends 
Tilly enjoying a cuddle - I know it doesn't look like it, but she doesn't really do expressions any more

Strange light on Scillonian III  as she left the bay
Off went Jim & the dogs up the hill 
Rather grey again 
Lots going on in preparation for the  changeover to the new underground cable  so that the cables you can see will be removed
Not usually so busy on the field 
First sighting a a big flock of Starlings 
Meanwhile I went into Penzance - tide out and not many boats left on the harbour 
A couple kindly pointed out this amazing Kingfisher standing on the outboard of a RIB 
Marine Discovery's Shearwater II back in the harbour after going into the wet dock during the storm 
Not easy to get a shot of the work to sort out the damage to Mali Rose - the hole is a heck of a lot bigger now ! 
Lots of welding inside 
Ramshackle already in the boat pen - but not as many as I had thought - lots of the local yachts are obviously still in the wet dock - but they'll be wanting to lift them out soon 
Zingaro For Sale
While I was out Jim had mowed the lawn- always looks nice just after it's been done 
Afternoon walkies past this lovely Cape Honeysuckle that is starting to flower 
After some nice sun during the day it was back to grey 
Well - all sorts of colours today 

High Tide and a huge amount of seaweed at this end of the beach 

Wow ! hardly recognised Murphy he's had a trim 
Love the fluffy tail
The black cloud had risen up higher
