One Week on

I cannot believe that this time last week we were on en-route to Penzance. It's been a whirlwind week at home here on the Isles of Scilly and at work. Ian is doing a good job as a house-husband and is already known in the supermarket and hardware store!! 

Our house for three months:

From my office window I can see the beach and the boats coming in and out of the harbour. We live about 5 minutes from the office. I am loving walking to all appointments. Ian worked out I had walked about 8 miles last week.  

On Friday night, we had coffee on the beach and were lucky enough to see seals just off shore. The sunsets are gorgeous and Ian is in his element with his camera. This morning, after church, we cooked breakfast and then took it to the beach to eat. How lucky are we?

Off to work on my first day:

There has been a mass exodus of residents from the island as the school has broken up for two weeks.  Tomorrow, the ferry will bring over 300 people over from Penzance for the final weeks of the tourist season here.  It's strange seeing shops, cafes etc winding down for the winter.

Friday night after work, drinking coffee watching the seals:

Breakfast on the beach:

Tim is enjoying being at home and it was good to talk with him yesterday.

Have a lovely week.
Lots of love,
