Fine breezy morning 

Clear view of Seafox 1 with water pouring out 

Always love to see a Sea King 
Unusual sight 12 miles out Car Carrier Suzuka Express listing "Drift awaiting for order"  

I went into Penzance 
Probably Mullet arriving in the Dry Dock Pool on the incoming tide 

Sand Snipe in Dry Dock 
Mali Rose still waiting for that first trip over to Scilly 

Couple of the big Hake boats in the wet dock 
Both sides of Mali Rose now showing the Steamship Group logo and the warning signs for the Bow Thrusters have been painted 
Such a pity that this huge cloud arrived just as I got to Jubilee Pool 
A little sunshine 

 Lots of people out on the lawns just below the castle 
Jim noticed Happy Return out in the bay
Looking very small as she passes Seafox 
Grey and rather cool by walkies time this afternoon 

National Trust paths looking good

Wednesday - 19th July

 Mist and fog this morning
Tilly enjoying the cooler day 
Wooster was feeling very lively as well 

Not much to see 

The mist suddenly cleared and we could see that Seafox 1 was still standing in the bay - with tug Thor close by 
A few light showers this afternoon and again as we walked the dogs.  I'm afraid you'll have to imagine that out there is The Mount, Trinity House vessel Patricia, and tugs Thor and Zeus
Wooster doesn't need to see a bunny to know one is there 
The Kidney Vetch is flowering right on the edge of Maen-dhu Point 
It was really raining by now, so that's it for today  ! 
Nice early night relaxing on the sofa for me

 Fine but very windy morning
 Jack up platform Seafox 1 being towed into the bay by tugs Zeus of Finland and Thor to shelter from the wind and expected storm

Pulled her further into the bay - then we left on another plant buying trip 
Burncoose Nursery  - we took the dogs into the gardens for a little run around 
Stunning huge flowers 
Wow ! what more can I say 
More beauties along the drive 
We bought a lovely Hydrangea as well as a few more 
When we got home Mali Rose was out in the bay in very different conditions to yesterday 
Seafox 1 had let it's legs down and was on its own
Early afternoon walkies as another area of heavy rain and thunder & lightening was moving up from the South and we didn't know quite which way it was going to go 
Amazing sky today 

The farmer has cut the sides of the field so the footpath can be used 
Wooster and Tilly say "Thank you Mr Farmer" 

The two tugs waiting for the weather to calm down 
Arklow View leaving the bay and making for Les Sables D'olonnes 
The black cloud was the Western end of the storm cloud that has dropped so much rain onto the East side of The Lizard causing terrible flooding through the village of Coverack - all are OK but many properties have been flooded 

Closer view of Seafox 1 - they're usually used to support off-shore windfarms 

Mali Rose stayed out and got almost as far as Lizard Point before turning back - she'll be having to tackle far worse seas than this on her Winter trips to Scilly 
She's back in the Wet Dock now
