We had a good day on the Isle of Wight. There was more cloud than the weather forecast predicted, some of it ominously dark, but though there was rain in the area none fell on us.
Twenty-nine travelled by train and ferry to the start at Sandown railway station. The train journey from Ryde Pier Head to Sandown was so bumpy that it was a wonder that the train stayed on the rails.
A new feature some of us spotted on the ferry ride was a group of six posts in the sea near Spitbank Fort. These are navigation lights for aircraft carriers.
