Silly for Scilly!

As part of our Cornish mini-break (it's amazing how much you can fit into a week!) Dr X and I spent a few days on the wonderfully different Isles of Scilly:

We travelled by helicopter  - a scary 20 minutes
We opted for St Mary's island for our first visit

The Star Castle is a lovely hotel which offers some of the best food on the island

This picture doesn't capture how slopey the room and bed were!

Old fashioned charm


Prince Charles has a home on the island, but I don't think it was this one

This beach was full of amazing pebble sculptures

You can always find a quiet bit of the coastline to relax in
