The Shanklin Chine

I bet you're wondering what a "chine" is - pronounced like chime, but with an "N". In England it is used to define "a deep, narrow ravine formed by running water." It isn't really used in the US, but is widely used there.

In any case, this chine is in the town of Shanklin on Isle of Wight. Hence "Shanklin Chine". It has been a tourist location since Queen Victorian times. It was a great walk (down :-). some pictures...

Right at the start of the trail, this is the view.

YES! I know I look terrible. No slouching.
