Today I went to Yarmouth with my two goat friends, Basil and Olly. My magic
lighthouse whiz zed us to Alum Bay, we then walked across Headon Warren, through
the little village of Totland, and along Colwell Bay until we reached the small
town of Yarmouth.
We hired 3 bicycles with helmets from a store in the town and set off for our
bike ride on the old railway track which ran along the River Yar. It was
delightful weather, the sun was shining brightly in the clear blue sky and there
was a slight breeze, which was very pleasant as we pedalled along the wide and
very long pathway, all the way to the bridge at Freshwater.
Basil suggested on our ride back we could have some fun racing games, Olly won
nearly all of these because he was so super duper fast at pedalling, I won one
of the races which was cycling for 10 metres standing up and not touching the
Once back at Yarmouth we had a stroll around the Harbour, the boats rocked
gently on the sea and the masts made tinkering noises like little bells, as the
flags danced high above, amongst the many seagulls flying by. There were a few
more clouds in the sky now and although the sun kept peeping through a shower of
rain suddenly poured down upon us and soaked us completely. We were all
shivering and now dripping wet, when Olly shouted out with delight to look up at
the sky. There above us amongst the grey rain clouds and bright blue sky was the
most enormous rainbow!!! What a treat to see such a beautiful site, I shut my
eyes and made a wish.
We had a hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows in the cafe on the
pier to warm ourselves up and then came home back to the Park for a long soak in
a very deep bubble bath.
