Isle of Wight Spring walk

Hello there - Spring is in the air so off we set for a walk around the park and onto the beach


Onto the beach and making shadows


Playing with shells
I see a face on this stone - can you?
Collected these from the beach and did a bit of crochet
As I was down on the beach I took this pic of Appley Tower
never having noticed before the stairs to the side
as I always take pics from the other side of the Tower.
Look left - Ryde pier in the distance
Look right with Seaview around the corner
Looking forward - across the sea
Portsmouth and the mainland.
How lucky am I to live on this beautiful island and have
all this just down the road from where I live

We went to the local pub for a roast dinner to celebrate a friends birthday
and just look at the sweets!!
Profiteroles with salted caramel ice cream inside
(hubby and I shared these)

Chocolate brownie
After lunch we strolled around the village

Beautiful tapestry cushions on the pews in the church
Very intricate design on this headstone over 100 years old

Second World War Memorial for people lost
This inscription always brings a lump to my throat

I liked these inscriptions too

Spring is bursting all around us. 
Thanks for popping by

A baby blanket has been made and passed on to Leo born 12th April
Two projects in mind with this lovely wool

This morning brought about an unexpected run -
A running friend is having some personal problems and the call
went out to do a Solidarity run for him and his family
This lovely lot of 90 people from different island running clubs
turned out and ran five and a half miles and then threw some money in a bucket
They raised a total of £810.10 and this total will go higher
from runners who couldn't make it along!!
What great community spirit and I was very proud to be part of it
