Nice Timing!

Still moored at Hillmorton.

The reason that only pictures have been appearing on our blog recently is because we took ourselves off to the Isle of Wight for 5 days. It worked out quite well leaving the boat on the day the snow started and spending the next five days of winter snow in a hotel on the sea front at Ryde overlooking the Solent. We did get our share of snow on the Monday and Tuesday but after that it was ok. Our hotel overlooked the railway/bus station and the Hovercraft terminal. The railway was a surprise with it’s ex London Underground rolling stock which still run out to the end of Ryde Pier.

Gypsy Rover in the snow when we left early on Monday morning.

Gypsy Rover in the snow on our arrival back this evening. Note the heavier depth of snow now.
More on our trip to the Isle of Wight over the next few days.
