for the first night will be camping on the beach (special occasion,tell you later) then staying at Bryher campsite for a few nights from the 28th May to 31st obviously weather dependent,pub very close,very good seafood so i hear.campsite has all the amenities,showers etc anybody like to join us,i want to make it a family affair so a good mix all round

Will be there cash permitting-it's unfortunately just after Honda finish their 2 month production shutdown so we may be a tad short of money as they've been my major contracts over the past few months.

all welcome,
Looking forward to it already Matt, May has been pretty good the last few years,so fingers crossed! sure you'll enjoy the 'je nes e qua' of the 'Fraggle rock' as well as all the other delights the Scilles have to offer.
How many places can you order a fresh Lobster from the farmhouse enroute to the boat 200yds away and pick it up later,still kicking or.. cooked and, not break the bank!? All about quality of life.hope to see the useual suspects along for this one,you know who you are!
LIVE LIFE TO THE MAX -CAUSE NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE!

Matt

Will pencil it in as it sounds like a great idea.
I'll need to see how things are going nearer the time, but it would be quite an adventure for the smaller Nashers as well.

I would definetley, but i fear its too near the due date of the baby, and sods law dictates...............i would be in the dog house for ever and ever if i was all at sea when it arrived, I would end up with a chart plotter where the sun dont shinepossibly with the boat attached.
never been there but it looks great, sort of tropical
maybe next time or for my 40th in april 2010
