View from near Southsea Castle…
South Parade Pier
Nearing Clarence Pier…
That’s more like it…….sunshiny pics at last 😉
It looks like you had an enjoyable stroll in the sunshine! 😀
Yes, I took the day off, and wandered down to Southsea Common, and after a pint in the Slug and Lettuce, traipsed along to the Canoe Lake and Southsea Rose Garden beyond South Parade Pier, then all the way back along the seafront to Clarence Pier :). It was a beautiful day in Southsea, and I’m sure you shared the same blue skies on the Isle of Wight, so I hope you also had the opportunity to get out and enjoy some of this very welcome sunshine :).
It was lovely here too…..although I was working so I didn’t have much time for walks today. If it lasts as long as they promise though, a walk along the seafront will be a definite plan soon. 🙂
I’m going to make sure I do a bit of rambling on the Isle of Wight this summer, probably on the west of the Island, via the ferry to Yarmouth, as I’ve always gone to either Cowes or Ryde previously. Anyway, I hope enjoy your own walk along the seafront :).
Thank you. 🙂
It’s beautiful out that side of the island and Holly’s favourite place ~ especially Tennyson Down…..bit of a hill going on there though! 😉
Okay, I’ll make sure I include Tennyson Down in the itinerary… thanks for the tip :).
You can walk from Yarmouth to Freshwater Bay along the disused railway line alongside the Yar, then up onto Tennyson Down, and along to Alum Bay. Get the bus back to Yarmouth from there. It’s a fair walk, but very well worth it.
Thanks a lot for that advice, wightvixen, and I’ll definitely make use of that information in planning the trip later this summer :). I remember visiting Alum Bay, during a family holiday as a teenager many moons ago, and for years afterwards my mum kept a plastic transparent lighthouse with its rings of coloured sands, that we bought in Alum Bay that day. She still may have it for all I know, and I’ll ask her when I visit her this coming Saturday :).
