Still working from Tuesday's notes. I moved my car from the Needles and drove to Freshwater Bay. Food was required so I called in at Tesco to stock up. Petrol was also required. I arrived on the island with a quarter of a tank, best top that up.
Stopping for a walk, a few pics. That bus is a mobile pub.
I drove to Ventnor, bypassing some of the places I probably should have visited. There wasn't going to be enough time in one week to see everything. I searched for a suitable overnight parking spot, following the 'P' signs. Nothing looked very promising. 'No person shall use a vehicle' . . . . bla bla bla.
I drove around the narrow streets of Ventnor and finally found one space on Trinity Street, outside Trinity Church. Not ideal, a few people walked by, but once inside the back of my locked car, no one knew I was there.
Wednesday morning I was awake at 6.30am, and making my first coffee. Luckily there was a picnic bench just over the wall in the church garden. I sat and studied the map to work out a plan for the day. I felt that my car would be safe if I left it there, so I went for a walk.
Bonchurch is a very nice village. A duck pond and some big posh houses. A few pics.
Back to the car, pack some food in the rucksack, leave the car there and go for another walk. Check the next episode to find out where I went.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
