    Scilly News

    Hello again Frank
    The sinking Scillies and the populations future need
    for flotation...
    A quick web search on 'Scilly Islands Geology' on
    Yahoo threw up a government planning paper 'A Heritage
    and Cultural Strategy for the Isles of Scilly' from
    www.scilly.gov.uk. The 'geology' section of this
    planning documents reports the known tilting of the
    granite base rock as well as the rising sea level.
    My anecdotal ( but secondary) informant is a
    geographer who was there this summer with a sailing
    dinghy - perhaps not a full blast scientific reference
    but good enough for me - he's a trusted friend as well
    as being a yotter who has circumnavigated two up going
    to the geographically interesting places rather than
    the popular places.
    Maybe the flotation won't be needed next week... I'm
    sure the residents of the Scillies can sleep sound in
    their beds, at least until after Christmas (joke).
