Scilly Seals


This year, the Wife and I went to the Isles of Scilly. The only place on planet Earth where you couldn’t suffer from the heatwave. Great place, however. Beats the Costa Brava hands down. And it’s part of what we, in Brittany, call “Keltia” (Celtic countries) too, so it’s a bit like home. Rough seas up there. I had to hold on to my camera and wipe it dry from time to time!42689899820_7f94357699_k

I know they aren’t cormorants but that’s about all I remember from the boatman’s explanations. Nice chap he was, quite an entertaining boat ride.

At last, we saw those we’d come here for. Shame their friends the puffins had already left.


You can always trust seals for the odd photo bombing. The one in the middle is just hilarious I find. Silly seals!

Prev Exeter -Devon - England
Next Istanbul or Paris?


    • Definitely recommended Margaret. A 3hr-train journey from Exeter, crossing from Penzance (3 hours too) to St Mary’s. After the obligatory stop at St Michael’s Mount of course.

  1. The quality of the light is astonishing, Yann — especially in that second image, where it’s gently highlighting the rocks. How fun that you got to see seals (both frolicking and “beached”) as well. They are entertaining characters, aren’t they? Thank you for inviting us to ride along on this extraordinary adventure.

    • Thank you kindly. I must admit that Lightroom did quite a good job here. The natural light was a lot less spectacular. More pics will be developed soonish.
