Some Sunny Snaps

Utterly gorgeous week on the Isle of Wight. I’m still not really geared back up to working or really writing very much at all, but here’s a few scenic photos.

There’s a lot more that needs writing, I’ll try and get to it soon I promise…

Holiday Time!

Posted in Everything Else by Joseph Moore on April 16, 2010

Sarah and I are off to the Isle of Wight tomorrow. A week of camping next to the beach near Bembridge Harbour. We can thoroughly recommend Nodes Point holiday park after we stopped off there on our trek around the island last year. £5 a night, deserted field and a brand new shower block complete with private bathrooms. Excellent!

If I get round to organising myself expect lots of short updates from my phone as I complain incessantly about the lack of sea back home in St Albans and pine for my boat which will still be tucked up safe and sound in Langstone Harbour.
