A circumnavigation of St Mary’s

Last night we had a ‘Scilly’ barbecue – freshly caught lobsters, crabs and mackerel by local fisherman Paul Lewis.

Today is the last day of the sea kayak holiday and we set out on a circumnavigation of St Mary’s.

Harold Wilson's graveOur first stop of the day was at Old Town Beach – I took a few people up to the Church to show them Harold Wilson’s grave.

An amazing week with Sea Kayaking Cornwall – thanks so much to our guides and tutors Shaun and Mark – highly, highly recommended if you want an adventure.
