On 6th September a small army assembled at the quayside in Lymington for an invasion of a very different kind. Barton Bees WI were off on their adventures across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and Osborne House. The windy conditions and the threat of a drizzle did not dampen our spirits. We enjoyed an excellent informative tour of the garden terraces, the beauty of the house and in particular the Durbar room, a trip to the private beach and a wander round the Swiss Cottage and the Walled Garden.
A wonderful outing and our heartfelt thanks go out to Sonia , our organiser extraordinaire, for all her hard work and patience. She counted us all out and counted us all back again !!!
