it’s day 5, 4 or 2 of our holiday depending on how you count it.
So far we’ve done pretty much everything, the weather has been so nice that – not wanting to miss anything – we’ve ran around the bits of the island that you always want to make sure you’ve ticked off.
Friday – we travelled down to Portsmouth and stayed at the Rinaldi’s house. night-time travelling yet again easing the journey, although Henry didn’t take well to being woken up and then asked to sleep again, we are considering doing the return trip late evening and stopping for tea.
Saturday – nice lazy morning, followed by a short trip to the ferry. being out of school holidays it was empty. we took the scenic route across the island very sunny. Daisy really wants to go the seaside, build sandcastles and stand in the sea.
Sunday – really sunny, so we took daisy to the seaside (shanklin) soÂ that she could build sandcastles and stand in the sea. the rest of the day was spent in the garden Daisy made a friend and we just let her run around.
Monday – really sunny, so we ventured into Ventnor, did the shops (although most of them close on a Monday, never understood that). then Ruth took Henry to the Winter Gardens and had tea and Cake while Daisy and Me went the beach to build sandcastles and stand in the sea.
Daisy and Henry are sharing a room, which has gone reasonably well but we were beginning to feel guilty about expecting Daisy to listen to Henry’s 10 minute cry before bed, so I took her for a walk to Woody Bay. I took some pictures and then we threw some stones into the water. a thoroughly nice day.
Tuesday (Today) – really sunny, we will probibly go to the beach, Daisy really wants to build sandcastles and stand in the sea.
