Day 4 - Sun 15 July 07
A fry up for breakfast, and got a lift into town to meet up with Paul, the guy who's going to get me across to Tresco today. The weather is overcast, and threatening rain. Tresco has a very different feel to St. Mary's. It's owned by one family and it feels like an up market holiday camp. You can fell that there's a guiding hand over the island. It's definitely a great place for kids.
I walked around the coastal path of the island, and the weather really closed in as I got to the highest part of the island near Cromwell's Castle, so I headed down to New Grismby and the New Inn. A glass of Red and a Salmon sandwich - lovely. Pottered around the harbour area and waited until 16:00 when Paul came in to collect me and take me back to St. Mary's.
There's an evening trip over to St. Agnes leaving at 18:00 and back at 21:45, but I decide against it, I just want to put my feet up! I'm amazed to find that quite a few shops are still open in Hughtown, even though it's quite late on a Sunday. I guess they have to cater to the tourists. I caught a taxi up to the B&B (well, I have been walking a lot!), and the taxi driver knew that my landlady was down in town - it really is a small place.
After a bit of a rest I walked up to the coast, and just sat down spent a couple of hours watching the sea. I saw the sun set over Tresco again, but it wasn't as spectacular as yesterday.
