Spring on The Isles of Scilly

A beautiful walk into work today, along the coastal path and Porthcressa Beach, with some magnificent cherry trees in full blossom.  Spring has truly sprung across the Islands, with wonderful birdsong, amazing blossoms, and the hotels and shops coming to life for the start of the season.     Tresco Abbey Garden looks truly amazing, with a vast number of species in bloom!  Next week, the Scillonian III (the passenger ferry that sails from Penzance, Cornwall)  has her first sailing of the year.  Though most of next week is freight only, she accepts her first passengers of the season on March 27th under the command of her new Captain, just in time for the start of WalkScilly2010 – which runs until easter weekend and also co-incides with the Isles of Scilly Folk Festival.  (You can follow the WalkScilly 2010 blog at: )  We are also full tilt into the planning of ArtScilly 2010, in this inaugural year, for this all encompassing arts festival with venues, events, and exhibitions across all of the Islands (more on  The festival will showcase the diverse and exciting range of talent from music to fine art to photography!
