Wild Weather

Monday October 21

No Scillonian, no planes, no papers.  Intermittent showers too - even worse WiFi, the occasional few minutes at random. Scilly disadvantages.
We went as far as Mumfords late morning for a cuppa and some WiFi access. Everyone seemed to have the same idea, all tables were occupied and Kavorna and Dibble and Grub were closed.
We ventured forth to Porthcressa in the afternoon, barely able to stand up in the fearsome wind, the sea was magnificent. Just like the day long ago when the helicopters weren’t running on our last day and we walked Peninnis. Too much spray for photographs, it would have harmed the cameras.
I’ve booked a cart for to-morrow for a last tour of our favourite places, come rain or shine. I should be enough ballast.
