Brother John with me in Wight for two days!
So Red Fred has been earning his keep, with a tour of my personal Highwights of the Island. Of course, I've written about all these before, so here is just a little selection of happy snaps from out Grand Tour. Starting with the Lady Chapel at Quarr. And, yes, it had me in tears again.. what is it about that place ..
Steephill cove for a meal at The Boathouse, and for John a swim in the Solent
and the family photo, to send home to Mother
John prefers outdoor sleeping, so he has his tent in the paddock above my window, with a morning view up to the Pepperpot!
And, finally, an unexpected meeting in Newtown. A three-quarter standardbred (1/4 cob), being worked as a hackney horse, down the picturesque streets .. but wearing a modified harness-racing sulky! It made me just a little Gerolstein-sick, so I gave him a nice pat and a rub..
