Sounds like an idyllic trip.

Makes me green with envy.

Well done

What a great trip & enjoyed the write up. Thanks for making the effort to bring the adventure to life.

I still have this down in my list of trips that I must do. I admire that you had the courage and determination to do it with one boat. I think I would feel better in company, but with good prep and weather would probably have done the same.

The wife was very 'jealoused' by the quality of your pics. Our Scilly shots are not quite of the same standard. I've just noticed that you're a pro snapper.
