A very different day, for me: I had to travel to the Isle of Wight for work.
I started off on a high-speed and really very comfortable train, but at Brockenhurst had to change on to a different train, and I swear everyone looked up as I got on, wondering who this stranger could be - someone different!
On arrival at Lymington pier, I found the station, shall we say small, then I noticed the flower beds which were different from any others I have seen.
Bearing in mind that I am used to cross channel ferries which can take up to 700 vehicles, I found this one a little odd, different - it looked as though it had been put together with matchsticks and string.
We set off leaving Lymington, a great yachting centre, behind.
Into the morning light.
In the distance I could see Hurst Castle, a different sort of castle, built by Henry VIII as one of a chain of coastal fortresses and completed in 1544, on the Hampshire side.
On the other side on the island, again in the distance, were Fort Albert and The Needles. Fort Albert was built in 1856 but because of armoured ships became obsolete by 1858. It has been converted into housing, a different place to live.
So that was my journey, different from battling down the motorway, and if Blogger ever starts working agin, I'll be able to upload this post!!!!
