A diary with a difference…..

Just a few pics..

It’s been a while since i posted any pics on here, these were taken a while ago, a couple of some of the wonderful boats we see journeying too and from the island, and also some of our greenhouse which one of our volunteers, Marta, has done a wonderful job of filling with vegetables, thank you Marta!  The farmhouse garden is simply incredible at the moment, so full of life…  Pictures to follow this week!

We had ‘The Waverley”, the worlds last sea worthy paddle steamer in the channel recently, beautiful boat and still running trips around the uk.  Take a look at her Wikipedia Page for more information

    I see the pub is finally open – congrats! You need to put up some photos though . . . or better yet I should come visit for a drink! 😀
    Hope everything is still going well over there 🙂
    And cool pictures Sam – I like the one of the Waverly in front of Flat Holm!

    • Hi Lisa! So good to hear from you! Thank you for the comments, we would love you to come back and visit! We have boats running from Weston-Super-Mare now, this is closer to you i’m sure… How’s the job? Let us all know! i only have one photo of the pub on opening day as we were all kind of running round, you know what it’s like! I will put it up it’s just that it isn’t that good a photo.. there were lots of press here who got us in the paper, on the telebox and on the radio… See you soon i hope, my threat to visit you sometime still stands!

  2. I would certainly love to come back and visit – I was actually looking at the sailing schedule the other day! And of course you are most welcome to come visit here. It’s kinda like being on a permanent holiday . . . except with work! Which is also great thanks 🙂
    My dad actually phoned me up to tell me that he had read about the pub opening in the Sun actually which was quite funny. Glad to hear it is getting all the attention it deserves!

    • Glad to hear you’re enjoying it down there, a permanent holiday sounds pretty good to me… have you had to evict any dog walkers yet?! It seems like you have all now found jobs which is amazing!
      Your Dad is the second person from Scotland to have reported seeing our little pub in the newspaper, amazing! I can’t believe the story made it all the way up there, needless to say we have had quite a few enquiries about pub visits so fingers crossed it will take off. This second Scotsman actually came down to visit us by the way! Fantastic! Let your Dad know that he is more than welcome! Any you are too Lisa!
