Friday 13th July. Brockenhurst to Brighstone. 22 miles.

I saw this morning, that there had been a weather warning put out for thunder, lightning and heavy rain! That’s good I thought I’ll stay here and test this new tent out to see if it leaks!

But after looking more closely at the weather I found out the bad weather was north of here, it only said nearby!

Boats
Coming into Yarmouth harbour

After finding that out I decided to move on! After all, they were expecting another 300-people to arrive here tonight!

I was a bit undecided where to go once I’d left the campsite, I wanted to head down to Swanage but didn’t think I could cope with all the hills! So I opted for the Isle of Wight instead, just for a change!

Tablets
The tablets Garry has to take each day

Cycling today was pretty easy and I’ve not really had any pain, it seems to be hurting more now I’ve stopped! But that could be down to the fact I’m due more tablets!

Tent
Camped on the cliff edge

Very leisurely ride today I didn’t leave until gone 10 o’clock and was here at Brighstone by 3 o’clock! And that included getting the ferry!

Think I might get the train home

Camped right on the cliff edge tonight, but luckily there’s a fence to stop me rolling off in the night! I just hope there’s no cliff erosion!

  1. How can you possibly take all those tablets? Don’t they give you constipation? A lovely campsite but how is it we never see you sitting in a cafe. If that bike were a donkey, you’d be had up for overloading. Do you ever do a day trip without the gear? It must be like floating on air.

    1. For some strange reason I don’t seem to get side effects, not even from my new tablets!
      What’s a cafe??
      The only day trips I do without any luggage, is to the pub!
