Today David and I went out on a wreck and seabird safari around the Scilly Islands. A fantastic beautiful experience. The weather was calm and still, but the waves still crashed hard and high against the rocks and islands. One wondered what it would be like in bad weather…
When we landed at St. Martin’s during the trip, we learnt that the special service had been down from London do to a drug bust. Exciting stuff on an island with a population of 80 people!
Then we went power shopping. Again! What else can one do when one is stuck on island….
Well, you can go to the Scilly Wreck Museum. Which was closed, but the owner was there, and she gave us a free guided tour of the museum! Sometimes you’re lucky!! We learnt a lot, and David even got to try the fog horn. Sounded a bit like when he plays the guitar J
Then we took the plane. And the bus. And the train. And a car. And then suddenly, we were walking with the rest of the band along the railroad track that lead up to the Sawmills Studio, beautifully situated by the River Fowye. You can also go by boat, but the tide was low, so we had to walk almost a mile with all our instruments. That’s the kind of things you have to deal with when you decide to record in Cornwall J
After a three course dinner we all were more than happy to go to bed before midnight. All except for me, who now sits here beneath the Cornish moonlight writing this. But from tomorrow I leave you all in the more than capable hands of Jenny. Will be good.
