Sally on Sabbatical

Life has a funny way of twisting and turning in directions and sometimes you are powerless to stop it hurtling and sweeping you up and throwing you into places you least expect to be, or rather didn't plan on going.

And so I found myself being firmly told to go on a sabbatical and where better than the fabulous Jurassic coast of Dorset currently enjoying a wonderful 'Indian summer'. Glorious sunshine warming up the sands and sea for those lucky enough to be here.  Colourful bunting lines the streets of Bridport fluttering over the people who sit and savour the holiday atmosphere.

But there is a yearning inside of me, a little voice that tells me I need to go back to the Isles of Scilly, to soak up the tranquility and inner peace that these stunning islands situated just off Lands End offer. They have the ability to sprinkle magic that becomes increasingly difficult to find.  Travel the world and you will be hard pressed to discover a coastline with beaches of the softest sand imaginable and crystal clear waters that separate each individual island with characters of their own.

And so tomorrow I am lucky enough to be sampling the delights of the newly opened hotel KarmaSt.Martins on the seductive island of St.Martins, Isles of Scilly.

Sally on the Isles of Scilly.

I do hope you will join me.
