Another lovely trip to the Isle of Wight, organized by Mary. Southern Rail pulled out all the stops to prevent the Chichester/Southsea connection working but with dogged determination, we were all together for a fine lunch in the Seaview Hotel. It was such a warm day we were grateful they found the air conditioning switch so we could enjoy their excellent food. It was a clear day with plenty to see out at sea. Two years ago we saw some up-market beach huts selling at £145,000. They're still for sale, but now at £199,500. However staying overnight is still forbidden. A great excursion with just over 4 miles to walk and no hills at all.
