Beautiful pics Dave

Love the seals - always an aaaaaah moment! :)

I feel a long weekend coming on..... time to start dropping hints to hubby me thinks ;)
Snappy 

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

Wow what a lovely place. Hadn't thought about going there but think that is now going to change. So did you do the Tony Hancock thing and get distracted with the lines it is not raining in Tokyo?  ;)
Staffies are softer than you think.

These pictures are awesome!  I lived in Italy for five months and Sicily was one of my favorite places I visited.  Absolutely beautiful, and not to mention that I found the food to be incredible.  I would love to go back :)

Errm.

These are the Isles of Scilly off Cornwall. Not the Island of Sicily, although they may look Mediterranean.

I got married on the IOS this year - fantastic place I love it.

You can hand feed the birds they are that tame - if you fancy having sparrows landing on your hands and taking food from you go to Juliets Garden Resturant on St Mary's ( near Hugh Town) and order something with bread in it!

Thanks DD, I keep watching the programmes and thinking I'll go there. Is it very busy now after the programmes?

I love the pictures of the Norfolk Pines in Tresco, I was fascinated by them in NZ and even tried to grow one here but the poor thing curled up and died in the cold :(

It was very quiet as you can tell from the beaches, don't know how it will affect peak tourist time.

This time of year there should have been a lot of twitchers, but there was only a fraction of the normal amount, ironically because of the good weather.

A lot of the small tea rooms, cafes etc. were closing down from the winter as a matter of course whilst we were there.

I went in Agust for the day a few years back, and it wasn't busy  :)
My Mum and Dad honeymooned there and we took them over for the day on the plane from Land's End airport. Went to the gardens and walked all over the island while M&D pottered around the town. Glad we did as we lost Dad a couple of years after the visit  :(
It's a beautiful place, well worth the visit. :)
