This morning (Saturday) around 8:30am we decided to go for a stroll on the Isle of Wight. We hadn’t eaten breakfast, but decided to take a few small chocolate bars (healthy I know) and a couple of bottles of water…. around five and a half hours later we returned home. The beauty that is on our doorstep engulfed us, and we actually only turned back because…. wait…. I’ll explain why further down.
Please forgive the darkness of the photos taken during the photo walk. The sun was actually out, but the batteries in the camera were low, which I think is why the photos look so dark. It was very warm and the sun was shining!
Well not actually the beginning of the walk, but let’s start at Ryde harbour and call it the beginning, which we eat a chocolate bar at, whilst watching the boats, hearing the underground train on route to the pier and watching the hovercraft.
After strolling along the seafront, we took time to watch the wildlife.
Next we walked onto the sand and as the tide was out, we strolled a bit further out, for instance seeing the driftwood and the seashell under water.
We strolled along a seawall, in front of green beach huts, then onto another stretch of beach, where we saw horses and riders enjoying a trot through the sea.
Onto another stretch of seawall and then through a lovely village called Seaview, with a boating club.
The journey home.
On the way back home we saw beautiful countryside, an old defence fort manned during World War 2, walked along more beach and visited the wildlife again.
