Back at Sennen
Not a good night's sleep - wind & rain. Got out to check tent but it's never as bad as it sounds in a tent. Bit spooky though somehow. Not like when the stars were out. Found myself wondering where the phantom knicker nickerer was 7 what he got up to at night. Packed up tent in rain but not too much of a problem with this one as outer tent last thing to go. Means everything can be packed inside in the dry. Blackbird waiting for us to finish so he could feast on the bugs that had been hiding. Chat with propieter on way out. From Shard End, down the road! Wouldn't swap his life now for anything. Treated ourselves to coffee at Star Castle Hotel. Kept VERY entertained by converstaion of 2 old ladies. Wonder if they wondered what I was laughing at doing my Sudoku. Had nive lunch at Boat House at far end of Hugh after a sit on the beach watching people learning to windsurf and sail in the harbour.
From the Scillonian
Feel sad to be leaving Scilly but will be good to head towards home. Sea rough on way back across but felt fine thanks to herbal cure that Rob bought at our friend, Michael Wood's. Was surprised how well they worked. Alot of showers while on boat but wasn't sure I'd cope if I went inside. Was very stuffy in there. Back at Penzance
6 pm. Chaotic off boat as so many people clamouring for their gear out of containers. No way of keeping it together so case of gathering it up yourself. Good to see car! Drove down to Sennen first. Big sea & lots of surfers. Really warm even up to 8pm. Had fish & chips on the beach. Back up to Estella & Paul's to borrow their house for the night while they're away. A real bed!
