835 – The Isle of Wight

It’s a long walk from the shoreside of the Isle of Wight pier to the ferry terminal at the end, and the weather was bitterly cold. But that walk was well worth the effort.

I had made the journey across the Solent to Ryde to be picked up by Jan and John and taken to the Eight Bells pub in Carisbrook, Newport for the Isle of Wight Radio Society’s Christmas meal. My first Christmas meal of the season.

I haven’t been to the eight bells pub before, but I would most definitely go again. It was lovely to see good friends, some of whom I have only ever spoken to on the radio and others whom I have met before.

The food was excellent, there were nice sized portions and it tasted delicious, as I said I would definitely go again.

One of my friends 2E1PHW Pete took me back to Ryde, he offered to take me to the end of the pier, but I wanted to walk the length even though it was a bit cold. Luckily the Wight Link Fast Cat (Catamaran) service is quite flexible, and even though I was catching a ferry at a different time to that booked, that was fine.

It really was a lovely day out.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
