The Isles of Scilly, Tresco The first trip we did after finding out the news of the big trip was to share the news with Katie's family, they have been going to the Scilly Isles for years and Kate thought (well not immediately) that it would be a good place to break the news to her Mum and Dad, I had never been before and had only spent a few hours meeting them up to that point, so it was with trepidation that I booked a helicopter flight across to the islands for a long weekend. The plan was for me to cook a supper and we would pop a bottle of bubbly and break the news, Kate's sister already knew, so it would the be a bit of a celebration (well we hoped!) The ... read more

This year we headed to the Isles of Scilly in June. Wayne and I left home early on Friday morning, stopping for breakfast en-route. We visited Lauceston, Romstormel and St Mawes Castles in Cornwall before getting to our B and B in Penzance. The Scillonion the following day was fairly busy, but the crossing was calm and trouble free. We arrived in the Islands and found our house, over the hill and far away - well about 15 minutes from the harbour. We stayed at Gunners Flat with Clem and Tony. It was a great 3 bed flat with good sized living space. The four of us got on well, and had lots of fun times. Wayne and I decided that rather than solely diving this year we would take a couple of days out to ... read more

I went to the Isles of Scilly in July 2008, however, the weather was so bad when we arrived in Penzance that the ferry was cancelled that day. Went to Lands End and St Ives which was lovely and travelled the following day to St Marys. Managed a number of dives during the week but had a couple of days off to walk round the island and the Garrison.... read more

We loaded the dive boat and met Jo who was optimistic about the week ahead. Our first dive was on a wreck the Lady Charlotte, after a bit of excitement Wayne and I ended up diving together, and had a lovely dive. Our second dive was a scenic dive on a pinnacle with lots of anemonies. We ate in with Steve, Jan and Tony having sausage and mash. ... read more

We didn’t need to get to the quay as early on Sunday as we had loaded our dive kit the previous day, so after a big breakfast we headed to the boat. The crossing was roughish, with some people being sick. When we made it to the Islands we had to wait, making us late in as there was another boat in harbour. We joined the mad rush at the coop getting supplies just before it shut. Wayne and I had a lovely dinner at Blues restaurant in the evening, which was really yummy and very relaxing. ... read more
