Day 3 - Monday, 20th June
Weather - still cold and it rained most of the day and evening!
We drove over to Ryde and visited the Waltzing Waters - a great 40 minute show of fountains in different colours synchronised to various types of music (classical and pop). They have been described as "liquid fireworks". Sorry no pics - cameras weren't allowed!
We then spent a couple of hours ten pin bowling.
Got back to the cottage early and spent the rest of the day reading (the cottage has a great selection of fossil and geology books and even a geological map of the island!) and watching Andy Murray in action at Wimbledon.
Highlight of the day was watching a family party of long-tailed tits foraging in trees in the garden. Too wet in the evening even to go looking for barn owls.
And shock, horror (:D) I have received a complaint that there were no photos yesterday of the donkeys at Carisbrooke When you see the rubbishograph below you will see why I didn't bother posting it!
Brian hoping for a strike at the bowling alley!
