I thought I'd include the map of the Isles of Scilly again so that you get a sense of where I've been and where this next post is about. Old Town bay is the southern most bay on St Mary's, just along from Peninnis. Click to enlarge any of the scenery shots to get a better picture.You walk everywhere on the islands, unless you're either lazy or you're unable to. I think if you walk around the coast of St Mary's it would be something like 11 miles! This beautiful little bay has a quiet and confiding feel to it. The only boats that I saw moored here were small rowing boats.This is at low tide on a brooding grey cloud day.And here, again at low tide on a slightly brighter day. Those houses have a fabulous view!This is at high tide one evening, I think we were on our way to the Old Town Inn for one of our dinners out. The sky was beautiful with an almost luminous look to the sky and various shades of grey in the clouds from soft silver to an almost slate grey.This is a view from Old Town bay towards the Peninnis headland on a bit of a misty morning. The colours of the stone here echoed the colour of the brownish bracken on the headland.A bit further round the bay and some people had been having fun with the round granite stones on the beach! (-:This amazing Fushia tree was growing in the garden of one of the house along the bay. I think it was about 6 feet high (taller than me anyway)! One day, I was sitting on the Old Town bay wall, watching the world go by. This Oystercatcher started to have a very energetic bath in the bay and I was able to capture some shots.
