So today was a glorious mid-spring day. The sun shone high, and emanated it’s warmth onto all around.
People smiled and waved a-plenty.
Lucy invited me to Shanklin for dinner, and we initially discussed drawing up a new sign for Shanklin but decided instead to just stick our thumbs out with trust in the universe. We agreed to take a lift to anywhere. But Lucy specifically wanted a lift to Ventnor.
I didn’t expect to beat the bus. The quickest we’ve had a lift together before has been in about 10 minutes, with our wait going over 20 minutes in one windy occasion. There were a lot of our colleagues at the bus stop today watching us, and I did hope for a little more luck.
And suddenly…….Lauren stopped!!
A lovely youth worker going off to Ventnor! What a lovely coincidence! Lucy and I then had to decide if we really wanted to go to Ventnor, which ended up as a no because we were both pretty knackered..
Lauren used to be an art teacher, and still now pursues this with a passion. She loves doing art and crafty things with the youth groups. And when she dropped us off she gave us her card, linking to her website http://www.studiowren.co.uk .
Lucy and Lauren know a lot of the same people, all good people working towards doing good things on the island/in the world.
Yaaaaay for hitchhiking bringing the world together!!!!!
