Despite everything being thrown at us, torrential rain, thunder, lighting, hail-storms and Covid we came, we saw, we conquered (kinda)!
A great team effort kept our spirits high, but not as high as some of the Islands hills – next time my vote is for Holland!
A big thank you is extended to Mel for organising the trip and his map reading skills – 9/10 (well there’s always room for improvement, right)? Also, thanks to Pete Morgan and Frank who took the time to wave us off from the Castle & Lymington Ferry (& Pete C for beeping at us along Silver Street – twice)! Martin put himself to considerable time, trouble, effort and cost to be part of the event – he is now an expert for the #7 bus route having almost circumnavigated the Island.
More stories to be told over coffee/cake but after nearly 85 miles, we could all do with a few days rest!
