Penzance HarbourEarly crossing.You can't drive to Scilly and so you have to get on the ferry as a foot passenger. Park at the harbour to drop off your bags only.
The ScillonianIts either swim, fly or sail to Scilly. I choose sail. I was warned that the crossing is the stuff of legends when the sea is rough. thankfully all plain sailing this time.
Peek over the wallat the top of the Hill across the bay is the Star Castle hotel. Behind it is the Garrison camp sight where i would pitch up for the next 48hrs
PorthlooOne of many views to the sea. Not far from here is the Juliets Garden cafe / restaurant.great for an open sandwich!
Bant's Carn neolithic graveC25th-C5th Bc. This neolithic / Bronze Age grave is one of a few pre history sites on the island of St Marys
Long rock standing stoneThe Scilly islands have there share of standing stones. This one isn't far from the Pants Can grave, but it took a while to find!
Porth Hellick DownThis one is stunning..... for a burial chamber! overlooking the south east portion of the island of St Mary's
ShipwreckedA homage to all those boats that succumbed to the rocks around Scilly. Albeit this one is on land....and isn't a shipwreck!
St Mary's airportperched at the top of a hill. I stumbled upon this after walking past a set of traffic lights on the right of way which were on green. You literally walk across the start of the runway leading to the airport. Be quick though as you don't know when the lights will change to red once you are here.
