A much better day today,probably the best day weather wise this month.
Started quite grey, but soon brightened up and with hardly any wind at all made for a very pleasant day.
Luckily I had plenty of time this morning to enjoy it too.
For my brother in law Martin had his auntie and uncle arrive today, their first time on Scilly.
They are only here for one night, so I gave them a tour of St Marys.
We went around the whole island, starting at the airport, down through Old Town, up to the Garrison,back through town, down to Porthloo and up to the golf course,
Then down to the viewing point at the bottom of Mcfarlands Downs.
Came back up and went down to the duckpond at watermill, and then around the rest of the island.
The whole trip took about one hour and a half and I reckon I enjoyed it as much as they did!
Maybe a future job for me if I get too old for carpet fitting....
Either that or photography.
This has been the best day since Christmas for taking pics, and my new camera hasn't let me down.
The zoom is huge and it is getting good shots every time.
Sure I could get better overall quality from a DSLR, but for me this little beauty (Canon SX10is) is a surefire winner and I recommend it very highly.
It just makes you want to go out and take more pics!
So after a spot of lunch, I went back to Prospect House and today it was a large kitchen vinyl,bathroom vinyl and hallway carpet.
This too more or less all afternoon.
With a quick break when I went around to Nundeeps guest house to pick up some underlay that I left behind..
All in all a good day and a good mix of business and leisure!
Tomorrow it definitely St Martins and an early start.
I will go down to the quay at about 8ish and see what boat I can jump on.
I'll be up there all day and may need to go back on Friday.
We'll have to see,one thing for sure there is no better way to travel to work than going by boat!
