I mentioned in the previous instalment of my UK trip saga that I was planning to travel to the Isle of Wight for a few days. This I have done, by means of a train, hovercraft, bus, and tired legs. Once I had established the whereabouts of a grocery store and other mundane necessities, it was time to explore the island. I had decided not to bring a car so I have been relying solely on public transport. This involves a lot of walking, since the buses are not obliged to drop you off exactly at your point of interest. These are some images from today as I explored my little village of Bonchurch, together with its quaint beach, and the Ventnor and Wroxall Downs which rise up from the coast and overlook the coastal villages below.
