Hugh Town, St Marys, Isles of Scilly

By TrevBatWCC    
On the St Ives holiday in 1995, we had a trip over to St Marys on the Isles of Scilly. The main (and only resort) on the island is Hugh Town, which separates the main part of the island from the peninsula. Here's a couple scanned from film negative from there. The first is looking across Town Beach, with the version from the Garrison on the peninsula.
I didn't take a loads of still images on that holiday or earlier in that decade; in the early to mid-1990s I was into shooting video, having a Sony Video Hi8 camcorder. The fad eventually wore off, and I was back into shooting stills only, on both Kodachrome slides and print film!

Many thanks to Dave (HobbitDave) and Ian (dales) for their User Awards on my previous upload, , most appreciated 🏆👍

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

Two excellent images from all that time ago, Trev.
We love the Isles of Scilly - the view in the lead image is more or less the same now!!
We were there in 2019 and your upload holds some wonderful memories for me.
