Happy New Year! It’s been kind of wet and windy but yesterday we had a fantastic window of sunshine so we went for a windy walk along the cliff from Ventnor. I’m really enjoying doing this sort of thing now that my daughter is old enough to walk. Our friends G and L were with us with their two kids so we had a nice little gang of children.
Steephill Cove is a pretty spot – you can’t get there by car so you need to do a steep walk, whichever direction you come from (involving lots of stairs down a cliff). A couple of years ago we were there and I saw someone with a Bugaboo Donkey on the beach – I seriously have no idea how they got that there (or got it back up to the top). It’s hard enough with just a rucksack.
If you go in summer, they have a terrific cafe that does a lot of crab. It being winter, however, it was shut (like much of the IoW).
