Sorry for the total lack of new photos on this site, however I do now post daily photos to the Isles of Scilly Facebook page.
I find that I don't have the time to do a proper bog these days but the Facebook format is so quick so use that it only takes a minute to upload a photo.
Pop along and check out the page, you can even add your own photos from Scilly if you want to.
Click the link below..
Cheers George.

My friend Wayne Davey a mainland paramedic that visits the islands frequently and also of Scillyboys rowing fame is taking on a huge challenge with 3 friends.
In his words... 
''3 men from 771 Search and Rescue squadron, based out of Culdrose, Cornwall, are setting out to ride 3100 miles from Oceanside, San Diego to New York City's, Times Square. We aim to complete the ride in 17 days following the RAAM (Race Across America) route through 12 states, 88 Counties, 350 communities and 170,000 feet of climbing.  The team are attempting to raise £20,000 for charity along the way. The Little Harbour Children's Hospice, St Austell, the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. We have been working hard raising money in supermarkets, shopping centres and even women's clothes shops! With concerts, children's parties, coffee mornings, auctions and much, much more planned! ''
