Which is the more scary, the beady eye or the gaping, hungry jaw?

On a Tresco stone wall

On Tresco (one of the Isles of Scilly) the air is so pure and the mild climate so conducive to growth that lichen and plants root themselves quite happily in the dry stone walls.

The Blue Lagoon

Around the headland from Porthgain, at Abereiddy, is a breached quarry in which a lagoon has formed.  The surrounding slate gives the water a rich blue/green colour  –  hence its name, the Blue Lagoon.

Despite the numerous Danger warnings, intrepid teenagers are prepared to risk life and limb as they jump and dive from the remains of the disused quarry structures into the deep waters.



The Lagoon is also popular with coasteering groups.  Coasteering involves traversing a rocky coast using a mixture of rock climbing, cliff jumping, swimming, scrambling and any other means of movement but without the aid of ropes.  In the picture below a group are just setting out under the guidance of an experienced leader.
