Scilly Isles Sailing

We can’t say enough about the beautiful coast of Cornwall and Devon. But then we arrived in the Scilly isles with pure water, seaweed low tides and silky sand we thought we were back in the West Indies. So many islands to explore here, 30 miles off lands end- UK s most western point.

All the islands have paths that go round and criss cross each other. Of course it was surprising to pass in front of people kitchen windows but that is what they do.

Most islands do not have cars. Everyone has splendid gardens and veggies for sale.

The many fishermen provide for the islands and mainland. Most all the houses were thick stone with slate roofs. Winters might be tough here as you know everyone and the weather limits your activity’s

On st Martins I found a charity shop shack stacked full with UK Country Living magazines.

On Tresco we explored Cromwell forts and Iron Age burial sites.

On St Mary’s we took some hot much needed showers and wandered thru the star fort.

This is a GOTTA GO place to sail!

Sailing thru water. restoring and refinishing wooden boats and homes. Handcrafting a collection of last a lifetime- inheritable objects. ( worldsendny) Inspiration comes from the places we sail, the people we meet and the history of long ago.
