Sandown and Shanklin

Early start today as we cycled to the Isle of Wight Parkrun.
We then carried on through the countryside - a red squirrel crossed the path in front of us with an apple in its mouth - to Sandown.
We cycled for a few minutes along the seafront, and before we knew it we were in Shanklin.
Both pretty bucket and spade towns with lovely sandy beaches and quaint buildings.
On the homeward leg we went through Bembridge where we stopped at the Best Dressed Crab Shop for excellent and enormous freshly made crab sandwiches. The shop is on a floating platform in the harbour and the fishing boats pull up alongside it to sell their catch. Apparently our crab was scuttling around only a couple of hours earlier.
67 kilometres today and quite cold and tired at the end of it.
