Last week D and I went on a little holiday to the Isle of Wight. We drove around the island and explored all corners. We walked to the Needles, round Bembridge harbour and along the beautiful and varied coastline. We stayed in a couple of B&Bs, Little Idyll, a sweet thatched cottage, and Little Span Farm and ate like kings - just check out the seafood royale from The New Inn. It was such a relaxing break yet we were only a couple of hours from home. It's funny how the sea can create a feeling of distance!
