It Was A Bit Choppy!!

By DicksPics
A series of images taken during our visit to the Isles of Scilly last October.

We were on the ferry from St. Mary's to Tresco .......... the title says it all ........ it did get calmer towards the end of the trip!!

The boat we were sailing in can be seen in V4 ........... when we boarded Sea King, my wife asked the ferryman, "Where is the best place to sit to avoid getting wet?" He replied, "Sit where you like, love, you always get wet on this boat!!" ..........

........... and she did ......... see V5!!

I take my hat off to the boatmen , their knowledge of the tricky waters is vast and we felt very safe indeed(ish!!).SmileSmile

Many thanks for all votes and comment on my 'Collecting the Mail' upload and, especially, to Fred(Fred263), Jeff(kojack), Dave(mistere) and Ian(dales) for their treasured User Awards.SmileSmileSmile

Smashing set Richard. Well captured under the circumstances. The waters around those Islands
can be very treacherous. Hence the abundance of diveable wrecks. Always a fun crossing with a
little bit of chop. The local skippers know what their doing though. Best place to sit is behind the driver.
He's always going to be the driest person on the boat SmileSmile

A lovely set of choppy water!
Stunning set of captures, Richard.
The boatmen must be expert boat handlers.
In those choppy seas, I would prefer to be on terra firma.Smile
