isle of wight day 1:

well we got here, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Daisy was fantastic, because i had a late panic about traviling on a easter weekend, we left ours at 7:30. We had a bit of a panic when arriving at carolines, we found them still in bed, but they are seasoned family travellers so they where up and packed in about half an hour.

we then proceeded to bomb down the motorway, and made more headway then we expected, and Daisy just slept, our new car is miles better than the rover for motoway driving, all was fine until we hit portsmouth, were we hit back of the traffic going to the fancy shopping centre the’ve built next to the ferry terminal.

the weather is fab, as ruth will always tell you, it’s always sunny on the isle of wight. i thought she was streaching it a bit given it’s only march, but it’s been nice all the way down and as soon as we got near the island, all the clouds dissapeared.

i think Caroline and John where impressed with the island, we drove the direct way so we haven’t done the pritty sea route yet (through shanklin and ventnor) but we still passed quite a number of nice houses. John read a Times article a few months ago that said the south of the island was a the place to buy houses, so now their here they are looking out for at all the for sale signs, i think we will visit an estate agents tommorow, window house shopping is quite fun.
