Scilly Isles

The isles of Scilly are amazing, they make no sense to at all, they are 30 miles (approx.) of the coast of the UK and yet they have tropical gardens on the island of Tresco - outdoor ones and all unlike the indoor Eden project, just a few miles away on the mainland. They pretty much all have sandy beaches.

The island we generally stay on is called St. Martin’s; the owners of the campsite are very nice and weird, and are Ipswich Town fans, so when my family go to stay we can keep up on how our football team are doing. For rich people, there is a super expensive hotel on the same island. The reason I love going back and take far too many photos is simply the tropical nature of the islands, it is like you should be miles and miles away where as on a clear day you can see lands end. It is not right and it shouldn’t be there; it should be in warm waters somewhere near the equator. The scenery and bright clear days make it brilliant for photography (though in the rain its a bit depressing) and another factor for my love of the islands are the people we go with make excellent photo fodder.

The isles of Scilly – can’t really be more specific about the where about of islands without knowing there longitude and latitude.
