Back on the Island off the coast of Southampton again

Monday 11th – Friday 15th October

Various photos, mostly of the sea, sunrise, sunsets and occasional random stuff – like this of two (viciously overpriced small bottles of Coke – thanks for the dent in my credit card, Warners Hotel Bembridge).
