Day 6
Our walk starts with a walk over the IOW Festival site on Arreton Down
Eventually reaching the IOW steam railway
Where we cross the track
Still plenty of water about from yesterday's rain
We head through some woods
Following a wide track
Eventually reaching Havenstreet Station
A pub in Havenstreet for lunch
After lunch our walk continues with views across the Solent to the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth
Then past the Havenstreet War Memorial on a breezy ridge
Cows IOW
Round the edge of a secluded pond, the former fishery for the monks
To the ruins of the old Cistercian Abbey
Sheep IOW
Horses IOW
Followed by the more modern Quarr Abbey
A look inside
A quick slurp
Before following the path along the coast
