Not a good start with a stop at the Little Chef costing 10 quid for 2 coffees and toast and teacakes and I thought they were cheap.
But the sun came out, ferry crossing was great taking just over 30 minutes from Portsmouth. The Castle Hotel at Ryde was nice. Owned by the Old English Inns group.
Inside our hotel at Ryde, a well deserved drink on arrival.
Lunch followed, even better.
Interestingly, the day we visited Osborne House, the favourite home of Queen Victoria, was the day she died 110 years ago, spooky.
Great weekend and good weather for January. All over so quick.
