Saturday Double Dip – 23/5/2020

It just had to be done! Choppy this morning? yes, very choppy this evening – double-dip YES! Did we enjoy it? Who on earth asks silly questions like that! We are so, so lucky to live on a beautiful island, surrounded by sea so close, with fantastic beaches. I feel as if I must make the most of every day, partly for all those who are no longer able to do so!

There are some interesting stone features at low tide opposite the zoo in Sandown Bay, not sure what they are but they look man-made, but then so do many natural features… note to self – investigate, find one of the many task lists lying around and add it to the bottom of the one that currently looks the least daunting.
