There comes a time Dear Reader when you need to rest your brain for a bit. Yesterday was my day to give the grey matter a little holiday and so TG and I took ourselves off for a nice long walk in the beautiful warm sunshine.
We walked from Sandown, through Shanklin to Luccombe along the prom to begin with.
I do love to see the Island when it is at its best and the sunny weather had loads of folks out and about on the beach and on the water.
We took the coastal path through to Luccombe and passed not a single other soul which was just what we’d had in mind .
With the turquoise sea and the hot sunshine you could have been in the Med somewhere. After a three hour round trip we found ourselves up on the cliff path with its spectacular views.
And repaired to The Beach Shack for crab cakes and squid. My phone app said that we had done six and a half miles but I think it may have been a bit more than that!!
Sometimes a little time out from people and chores and work and life in general is just what is needed to recharge the batteries.
We are so very lucky to have all of this a fifteen minute drive away and I can assure you that we never take it for granted. A fun day of quiet walking, chatting about this and that, plans for the future and just being. And to be highly recommended. So if you get the chance to spend an hour or two just being, then go for it. It does a body good!
*TG asked why I was taking a picture of the above. I said that I loved the colours and the faded shabby look of it. He said that all he could see was some wood that needed rubbing down and painting……*sigh*
