 Morning walkies as the cloud was breaking up a bit

Lovely wall up at Trebarvah 
Think that this is a Ringlet butterfly 

Was standing on the footpath by the house when this came overhead - very low indeed 
Saw that Mali Rose had moved in the wet dock, so popped down to take a look  - cargo door open 
Crane  moving
 Didn't expect that - Vega in dry dock
Wonder if it is just to get it out of the way or if she's actually having work done 

Super old Looe Lugger Guide Me here as always for Golowan Quay Day on Sunday 
Yep ! crane went all the way round 
Some of the boats decked out ready for Sunday 
Little harbour tug Danmark - always a sign that something is moving 
Trying to work out how to load and unload ? 

As I got back to the car the cargo door went down and she moved back alongside the road - possibly under her own power ! 
Meanwhile Jim took the dogs out - busy busy out there - top field all gathered in 
Lots of Poppies around this year 
Rather grey again 

Isles of Scilly holiday continued - Friday 16th June

I know that some of you are not interested in Isles of Scilly photos, but some of you are devoted to The Islands and for one reason or another are not able to visit - so here is another day - just a couple of days to go
Walking along The Strand which was already closed off for the Start/Finish line for the Ötillö Swim/run race on Saturday 
Such a wonderful view 

Off-Island cargo delivery vessel Lyonesse Lady - so often overlooked, but very important 
Onwards on a really very hot day to Juliets Garden - we stopped off for Lemon Drizzle cake and tea/coffee  - of course !
Super view of Bishop Rock Lighthouse over the end of Annet 
A little engine sound and there she was sweeping in 
on a fast arrival 
Star Castle Hotel and our room in the low building to the left 
Onwards round the Island and Tilly managing the steep climb over the top
Another lovely bird - no idea !
Walking along St Mary's and looking over to Round Island Light 
Spotted a small orange flag marking the exit point for the Swim/run folks 
Such a lovely spot out here 
With the marker on the beach for them to enter the water for the swim to Tresco 
Got a surprise when Scillonian III appeared having done a very quick turnaround 
Halangy Down Ancient Village and Burial Chamber 
Usually a favourite spot for a paddle, but too much seaweed for our two fussy dogs 
Jim trying to get Tilly in to cool down 
The Day Mark on St Martins
Wondered where the Pilot Boat had been 
High Tide at Bar Point 
That's where he'd been - super small but luxury cruise ship Variety Voyager with passengers boarding Sapphire at the stern 
Datura in the amazing garden at the top of Holy Vale 
Holy Vale Vinyard 
We then took the rather hidden footpath out of  Holy Vale along to the newly opened Longstone Lodge and Cafe - lovely tea and cake 
and lots more on offer 

Really wish them well in their new venture 
Back up the hill once again 

Too many clouds for a green flash
