Left home this morning at 6:15 and drove West almost to the end of Cornwall, got on a ‘Plane and flew 28 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean, got off the Plane (after it Landed) and caught a minibus to the Quay on St. Marys then a ‘Jet’ boat a couple of miles further to get off on the Private Holiday Island of Tresco!
Shame I’m here for work really, I couldn’t afford to come and stay here otherwise.
That’s a view of the Lands End peninsula from the Terminal at the Airport, taken through the early morning mist so a bit fuzzy.

Today I have had to Fly to the Isles of Scilly, 28 Miles out west of England in the North Atlantic.
A struggle I know but somebody has to come and repair the Laundry Equipment over here, and I don’t mind in good weather, Unfortunately it is not always good weather!
Good today though, and got better as the day went on. On a Sunny day the Islands could be in the Caribbean though a little cooler though still in the Gulf Stream waters.
I was working on St Marys, the main one of the 5 inhabited Islands today, so no boat trips needed, not a bad thing as it’s blowing a Force 5-6 and the water is a bit choppy with nothing to divert the waves after the USA!
