We went to Shanklin up on the cliffs overlooking right round the eastern point of the
island to Bembridge
sea and sky
playing with shadows
I spotted this sign along the path on the fence!!
We stopped at Brading Town on our way home
This is the old Town Hall - take a look inside
The five hole stocks
not too keen on the leaves and the weeds that are growing in there!
walking on around the corner from the Church and the Town Hall
Over the road this beautiful building - The Rectory Mansion
On our way home I spotted this tractor ploughing the field
heading back to the car was this lovely piece of machinery
and these gorgeous colours growing wildly in the hedge
* Another day out *
We had a stroll around Yarmouth on our way to watching fellow runners taking part in the
Isle of Wight marathon
(which celebrates it's 60th year in 2016 and is the oldest continuously run marathon in the country)
156 finishers took part this year
the runners came down this lovely scheduled path which got them off the road
here comes Mick who is running along the cycle path
I had time to look at the view over the side of the path
the runners didn't.
After all the runners had passed us we wandered back to the car taking in the views along the way
There is this sluice
The old Yarmouth railway station which closed in 1966 has now been opened as a café
and everything around has been painted and mended
I love this sign
Heading back up the path look at what is just growing wildly around us in the hedgerow
Over the hedge
I hope you have enjoyed our small stroll around this beautiful island
Thanks for popping by

Bridget ran her first ever marathon and here she is coming up to the 20 mile mark
she has another 6 miles 385 yards to go - she did fantastically
Bridget made these
and turned them into this as the rounds progressed
and finally onto the border for a blanket on Abbie (her daughter's) bed!!
She had time to train for her first ever marathon in between crocheting - BRILLIANT!!
