It was a family get together on Tresco, one of the main islands in the archipelago, and we were due to fly back Monday lunch time. Alas conditions at the destination airport of Land's End were far from ideal, in fact best described as a thick pea-souper (see above)
So after many hours waiting in a very crowded and rather small airport on St Mary's we were sent back down to the harbour to get the ferry to Penzance.
Alas it got us there about an hour and a half after the last train to London, so my return home was delayed until today. However a lucky few were packed onto the helicopter that also goes to Penzance - but getting there a lot quicker.
It's a shame was unable to add my first trip on a 'copter to the long list of forms of transport for what was otherwise a rather good weekend!
