Post The isle of wight 2012 “to do list”

Been a bit quite on here from the Island, of late. So.....with 2012 well and truly here and my list of “things to do” started thought, I’d better start putting a few reports from my explores together. Its April all ready, and after getting back from a quick trip to the sun to keep the Misses happy thought I’d start with a little taster of what’s to come, fingers crossed I got something for everyone!

Some locations with a fantastic view

Some total waste of time explores, Newport ROC Post 1 has that slightly over grown feel to the compound & after finally getting in Farmer Brown has placed a grab bag half filled with concrete on the hatch!
A few funny’s, I can just image when making a number of the objects I’ve found the manufactures thought hold on this is going down to the Isle of Wight, put the name on it so they know what it is!

I got loads of photos to sort through and reports to make up once I got my flicker page sorted, & I’m planning to start a blog about the unseen side of the Isle of Wight so any advice or comments very welcome. Keep safe and enjoy GF.
