A day on the Island.....

 

 

I have found a Heritage Trail covering East Cowes and Cowes which is approximately 4 miles in length.  We can do as much or as little of the walk as we like and can stop for lunch at a local pub/restaurant if you wish.

Take a look at the above link and if you have any alternative ideas please feel free to share with everyone.

We should be able to get the Off Peak Group fare which works out at £10.95 plus £1 meetup fee.

I suggest we meet outside Terminal 2 around 0915 so we can get the 0945 ferry.

Suggested parking shown on above link.

Please check the website before setting off as we will postpone if it is raining.

    Great day out, thanks for organising Mandy. Weather may have been windy but it stayed dry and I love it by the sea :)

    Sorry I wimped out Mandy but I am very much a 'fairweather' photographer. I will be out and about when it gets warmer. Glad you had a good day on the island.

    A great day out. Very cold, but Egypt Hill warmed us all up! Thanks Mandy for organising.

    Great day out and meeting more new members is always a pleasure as well as catching up with some regular members too! Egypt Hill certainly warmed everyone up with a welcome bench at the top. Will sort another day out in the summer when we can take advantage of the longer days and get around more of the island.

    Thanks Mandy for organising a great day out. Weather was blustery but ok and plenty of pics taken. Thanks for losing me 1/2 stone of weight on one hill alone!

    Mandy and Peter, thank you for organising a great day out today and making me feel so welcome. Hope to see you all at another event soon.

    OK everyone wrap up tomorrow cold but dry. I have a mystery challenge up my sleeve which could result in a £50 prize if you don't mind a slight detour to a new medical centre which my company has developed located in Church Path. Tell you more tomorrow.

    Sorry Mandy but the forecast for Sunday is freezing and wet, which doesn't appeal to me

    Sorry Mandy but the forecast for Sunday is freezing and wet, which doesn't appeal to me for a photo session, so I am going to give this one a miss.

    Hi - I'd like to come along please - sorry it's short notice. Do I need to buy the ticket in advance, or just on the day?

    Assuming we are taking the Red Jet ferry over, there is a nice coffee shop adjacent to the boarding area where we could meet and and have a quick cuppa before boarding. You can also take it on-board if you haven't time to finish it.

    Hi - I notice someone has used one of my (butterfly) pix for the top banner on this site. Not sure whether to be flattered or annoyed that noone had the courtesy to ask ......
