Sunrise over St Mary's IOS



On my last day on the Isles of Scilly I went to watch the sunrise.  I should have flown back to Newquay yesterday but the airport here on St Mary's was fog bound. Being a small aircraft, weather conditions must be just right, so flights are often delayed or cancelled. I had been warned it might happen so made arrangements to spend another night on the island knowing the weather would be perfect for flying the next day.
























Then it was back to the B and B for breakfast before leaving for the airport. I have loved my first visit to the Scilly Isles and I have a feeling it won't be my last.

  12. Looks like a fireball falling in the sea ! so it could only be a sunrise anyway just beautiful and the rocky landscape too ! Exactly to my taste !
    My friends and I will go to Düsseldoft see the Christmas market there. We are going by bus all organized. Probably I will play translator and advisor for Christmas cookies, yesterday I introduced them to Christmas Pudding and Christmas log from the British shop !
