...and across the sea... the Isle of Wight, for a very happy day visiting St Cecilia's Convent at Ryde. The round of prayer in the daily Office, the opportunity of a good talk with the Prioress - wisdom, common sense, laughter - and the joy of the sea, the stiff wind on the Solent, a hearty fish-and-chip lunch at Ryde Castle...

We left as Vespers gently finished...the light was fading, Portsmouth glittered across the Solent, the ferry met the London train at the harbour station.
