Holiday part 1- making the transition...

So last week I went to join my parents on their boat for a little holiday. Due to poor weather they’d only managed to sail to Newport on the Isle of Wight- the plan is to get much further west. To reach them I had to get a ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde (very much enjoyed asking for a “ticket to Ryde”!) I truly believe the sea is in my blood and it’s very easy and rather exciting/inspiring for me to make the transition between a land lubber and a seasoned sailor. So here are some photies of the first couple of days of my holiday...


With it being this sunny I couldn’t wait to get to the boat! Snapping while I was on the ferry...


Hanging with the locals at The Spyglass Inn in the Ventnor...I couldn’t believe people were swimming in the sea, I was freezy!


Went for a ride on a steam train...and ate lots a cream teas yummy!
