Day 6
Mary is our leader today at Brighstone Forest - our experts help her with her map reading
Before we head up to Limerstone Down
Where we have views to the sea and back along the coast
A walk through some woods
Brings us to the other side of the hill. Now loooking across the Solent
Blacksmiths Arms - could be interesting
It's well signed
Can't be far - time for lunch
We gather in the garden after lunch
Off along more rolling downs
And fields of corn
Carisbrook Castle in the distance
A muddy track
Brings us to a farm
With a pretty farmhouse
And a closer view of the Castle
The old asylum - now luxury flats
More thatched cottages
And Gatcombe church - a modern memorial tomb

Looking towards the altar
Best not to sit down

Looking back down the church
We leave the church to be picked up by the bus
In the evening we have a magician at the hotel - the quickness of the hand deceives the camera *
Kathy has problems with her wedding ring *
Richard has a weighty problem *
And prepares to disappear - but it doesn't work permanently! Tim looks on aghast *
Aaron Isted is the magician's name - scroll down to read Bill Grindley's testimonial HERE
