Saturday 23rd June
We slept in late in the morning, I got out about 0900hrs and made coffee before rowing ashore the to text our shore contact and confirm we were safely at anchor in The Cove and to say we were staying for a week in the islands and would contact them again later in the week with plans for getting back to the mainland.
After a light breakfast we lifted anchor and motored the 2.5nm around to Porth Conger where it we less swell rolling in. On entering the anchorage we saw our sailing friend Aden who had zipped across in his rib from Green Bay for a pint in the “Turks Head” Here Elektra would touch bottom at low water, after anchoring and checking she was holding ok, Vicki helped me with lowering the outboard onto the dinghy and we went ashore for a pub lunch and a pint with Aden. He said this was the best day he had seen since he had arrived in Scilly at the beginning of May.
After a long lazy lunch a few pints and a chat with Aden we parted company saying we would see him later in the week at Green Bay.
Back aboard “Elektra” we enjoyed the afternoon, evening sunshine and then with the day coming to an end were treated to best sunset I have ever seen.
