A brief intermission

While the Indoor Writer is putting together several blog posts on the Swanwick Summer School here is a brief intermission featuring some photos from her recent holiday on the Isle of Wight (worth a visit if you've never been, it's a cross between Devon and Dorset... with plenty of good walks, pubs and cream teas).

We stayed at Roseland Cottage (below centre), near Calbourne village, with it's flower filled garden.

  1. I love the IOW. Great photos and the cottage looks idyllic. It reminds me of James Herbert's book The Magic Cottage

  2. Thanks Gill - having read a lot of James Herbert in my teens I know he's usually writing horror, so I really hope he didn't use Roselands as an inspiration. Thankfully nothing horrific happened to us during our stay!

  3. thats good and sorry i never meant to link it like that, just the image reminded me of the cover of his book.

  4. I hope you waved to me as you went past?

  5. You mean you didn't see me waving Patsy? Actually did think of you as we drove past the Historic Dockyard - made me think I must come back to Portsmouth for a serious exploration one day.
