Skylark goes to the IOW (again!)

Well, another trip to the IOW to see Woodie. Great drive down, nearly 300 hot miles. Got my fist Chop in at a set of traffic lights when I had gone into the wrong lane, the car was officially ‘Chopped!’ (Watch MCM on YouTube to get the relevance of that).
It’s officially hot down here, should meet up with Sir Woodie of Hijet fame tomorrow. Starting to fed up now, this is the third time I have added photos only for them to disappear!

Ferry good. Maybe this pic problem is a regional thing?

Just to pro e I still have the knack of posting pics, some pics of Shanklin and Bembridge.
Had a breakfast meeting with Woody yesterday and meeting again tomorrow for breakfast at Betsy and Spinkys, on the front in Ventnor.

For all those that have benefited from the help of Woodie, be it advice, parts supply or been on the end of his sharp humour you must be thinking what does this man look like? Well here is your answer:

(Notice the shop name!)
Been further out to Freshwater Bay today, was heading to the Needles etc but for the third year we havnt made it! Two previous years it was because of mechanical issues and this year we got as far as Freshwater Bay and my wife lost her balance on the shingle beach so we spent 3hrs in A&E! Fortunately nothing broken just a bad sprain. Oh well, looks like we will have to return next year Very Happy

Hhmmm!!  Bodywork definitely rotting quicker than a rusty Hi-Jet with TinWorm. Mind you a Hi-Jet wouldn't make it to nearly 70. Frightening thought that I am only 18 months away from that Landmark age.

Don't boast junior - Very Happy says the 70 year old.

Steady drive back home 225 miles and managed without stopping to refuel (at motorway prices I'm glad) which ended up at 51mpg, not bad I dont think. Not my best but close enough.

Captain of the ship, lookout on the way home.
