We got up, showered, breakfasted, packed, loaded up the motorbike and then locked up The Van ready for our few days in my beloved Isle of Wight 💗
I’ve been visiting since I was a child and love the place so have been really looking forward to this part of the trip… We WOULD have come across in The Van BUT – as Dave informs me – “it’s the most expensive strip of water in the world” – and a 40 minute crossing from Lymington to Yarmouth would have set us back around £250.
So THIS trip we opted to come over on the motorbike 🏍 for 1/5 of the price…
My sister Maria, Paul, Sophie & Mikey are also here this week – using their yacht as a “floating caravan” moored up in East Cowes so I booked (the only available) B&B in East Cowes and we arrived a little while ago and it’s directly across the road from Osborne House (former residence of Queen Victoria) – aptly named “The Prince of Wales” !!! 👑
AND – take a look at our room – HRH Princess 👸🏼 Helena – yes !!!
And private bathroom opposite…
I think I might get Dave to put named brass plaques on our rooms at home !!! 😂😂😂
My Dave’s had a little nap (whilst I’ve been updating the blog) but is awake now so we’ll get ready and wander off to meet Maria for pre-dinner drinkies on the boat 🛥🍾 🥂 …
