Isle of Wight Day 1

A leaden sky and very strong winds for the Car Ferry journey from
Lymington to Yarmouth (IOW) today.

It was difficult to stand up on deck to take photos - due to the gale - not the alcohol.

We were accompanied by Terns, not many and only one or two seen diving there were common Tern but the pictures of the other Terns aint great so I cannot say if there was any other sp.

After we arrived in St. Helens we had a short walk along the coastal path in glorious sunshine!!

In the evening I took a 30 min stroll down to the Duver an interesting salt marsh type area.

A great day, with completely different weather to the horrible forecast we had seen before we left home
