Day 17-Shanklin to Fishbourne, Isle of Wight-24 miles with 1400 feet of elevation then ferry to Portsmouth

We had a great evening meal in Shanklin at the Fisherman’s Cottage on the end of the Esplanade.

Our group stayed in 2 different places and I stayed in the Grange Bed and Breakfast. Very nice. 

We got away fairly easily. 

Windy, cool, sunny and beautiful. 

We went inland and WOW. 

Bembridge windmill from the 1700’s. 

We went back out toward the water for tea SAG. 

We went through a town and saw this closed school. 

We cycled along the coast after some climb. 

It was beautiful. 

We got to the ferry and were first on and off. 

A quick seaside roll to a old but nice hotel on the ocean in Portsmouth with the War Memorial on the way down. 

This trip is in the books with the exception of dinner  and getaway tomorrow. It as great. Peace out Tres
