Last Saturday (24th Feb ‘18) was a cold day on the Isle of Wight. However the sun was shining and my wonderful girlfriend and I decided to go out for a stroll.
I had spent late December, January and some of February ill, and this was the first time of the year that I was visiting the seafront, which is only a short walk from home. I felt the visit was long overdue.
Before we went out, a monster vegan cooked breakfast was enjoyed, consisting of Linda McCartney sausages, grilled tomatoes, fried bread, beans and toast. We detoured to a charity shop in Ryde and browsed their selection of second-hand books and other items, then strolled to the seafront. Despite the chilly weather, plenty of people were out, wrapped up and enjoying the sunny weather.
On-route to the beach we took a moment to look at Peter Pan’s Funfair & Amusements, and further along we were amazed to see their trampolines and an inflatable slide already open, with kids already enjoying the trampolines.
We didn’t have a long walk, but that’s the benefit of living on the coast, you don’t need to maximise the experience each time, and just enjoying the company, sea air and views, even if just for a short while, can be rewarding.
At home, we did chores, started the process of switching utility providers and much later we ate a vegan bolognese and pasta.
