Kiera has gone off with the girls for a boozy weekend in Glasgow, the kids are at their Grandparents which means only one thing.
In the words of William Wallace "Freeeeeeeeedommmmmmmmm"!!!!!!!!
But with the weekend off myself, I thought that I should make the most of it and head off out on my trusty Honda C90 aka "Lucille".
I was unsure where to go with a loose plan of watching the sunrise out at Calshot spit, but a last minute change of mind had me booking a ferry ticket to the Isle of Wight.
It has been many years since I was last over, and that was on business so no time for sight seeing then.
For a full report please visit my other blog at www.fatbloketravels.blogspot.com but a couple of pictures for you to wet your appetite.
However, the ferry is not cheap, £34 return for me and the bike! £70 plus for a car!
A great day out was had, and when I got home a quick shower and then off out in the VW as I had pre bought all the ingredients to make a wickedly hot chilli.
Off down to Keyhaven Marshes and I cooked myself a fine tea. I had contemplated staying there the night, but decided against it in the end and headed home. I was shattered.
