One of my best days on Scilly

What a great day – after two days of rain and wind today the sun came out. We still had a stiff westerly wind but it doesn’t stop us all getting out for a decent paddle. We set off from St Mary’s and headed over to Samson. It was quite a lumpy crossing and the wind meant my boat kept getting blown off course.

Arrival on Sampson
We got there though – so chuffed – it was really low tide so there was acres of sand around the island.

Onto Bryher
From Samson we headed onwards to Bryher.

Garden TigerWildlife highlight of the day was finding this Garden Tiger on the door of the Bryher Gig Shed. A rare animal now – has declined by over 80% in the last few decades – I haven’t  seen an adult for 10 years!

Round Island LighthouseAt the end of the Tresco Channel you can look across to Round Island and its Lighthouse.

Achieved a lot of things I haven’t done before today – one of my best days ever on Scilly.
