The children and I travelled by foot, train and ferry to arrive to a cloudy but beautiful St Mary's on the Scilly Isles. Having followed Brimble, our boats progress on AIS tracker we could see it was touch and go whether she would make it in time for our bed time and having scoured the island for accommodation found there was none to be had. That's not true I found somewhere for the one night at just over £350 and was not relishing the thought of paying that much...
So luggage in hand we traipsed across the island to the visitors centre to find out how we should amuse ourselves. We found at 2030 there was a local wildlife film being shown in the town hall and thought if needs be that's where we could spend some of the evening.
Learning there was a left luggage area back across the island where we came from we decided to hot foot it or more like luggage drag it back to the quayside where we thought we would order our first ice cream and decide upon the many activities on offer which we should begin with.
On arriving dockside what did I spy? But the unmistakable pink radar reflector of Brimble! She had arrived. Joy of joys, I nearly cried.
Needless to say we are all reunited and Internet is very hit and miss with the emphasis on miss. You may not hear from me for some days.
Wish us fair wind and sailing and I'll speak to you all soon
