Saturday 21st April. Langton Matravers to Adgestone. 64 miles.

It was a very disturbed sleep last night! All I could hear all night was some poor cow (the four legged type!) mooing all night! I don’t know what was up with it whether or not it was trying to give birth or something, but it was really distressed! Don’t think I’m going to get a lot of sleep tonight either there’s loads of thunder and lightning about!

Well just for a change I’m on the Isle of Wight! Although not at the same campsite.

One of the reasons I keep coming back here apart from liking the place is because my hip and leg are so bad I don’t have much confidence in going too far! I’m fine if nothing goes wrong, just about! But if I had a puncture or I had to change a tyre it would be a major effort for me! Putting the tent up is bad enough! But saying that I’m still enjoying myself!

The ride today was a lot cooler it’s been cloudy nearly all day and the last few miles was in the rain! Luckily it stopped just long enough for me to put the tent up, then the heavens just opened!

The eyes are still bad I’m wondering if I’ve got conjunctivitis, I’ll get them checked out tomorrow as I’m heading home for the night before setting off again on Monday.

  1. Adgestone, now you’re talking – it’s a lovely little place and there’s a vineyard there.One day you’ll have to go to Adlestrop. I’m working out how I can get to Hamble. The last time I cycled along the Solent path but I’ll have to catch a bus now. One day you’ll recover but there’s no coming back from old age.God man and you’re still camping.

    1. I saw the vineyard as I cycled out towards Brading maybe I’ll have to pay it a visit next time!
      Have you been to Adlestrop? Or do you know it from the poem?
      I’m sure that you could get a bus to either Warsash or Hamble. Infact if you got the ferry from Cowes to Southampton you could probably cycle to Hamble, it’s only about 7 miles from Southampton and it’s relatively flat!
      I’m sure I will recover, but isn’t old age just a state of mind?
