With some fantastic weather this week, we had many outings. We drove to Wroxall to visit the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, where we got to see many handsome donkeys, stroking some as well. We saw the Waltzing Waters show – an elaborate water, light and music display. At the hotel the boys went swimming when the girls were being pampered having their hair and nails done.
We made a trip to Alum Bay, from where we could see the famous Needles. We also watched the amusement park and the chair lift, which takes people down to the beach below. Here we filled our shapes with multi-coloured sand, taken from the local cliffs. We watched a glass blowing demonstration, which was interesting and beautiful to see being made, as well as visiting the shops, with some buying souvenirs.
We drove out to Seaview, where we visited the hands on wildlife centre. We strolled around the park looking at all the birds and animals and helped with the feeding of the wallabies and penguins before stopping for lunch. The best part of the whole holiday though was celebrating Lizzie's birthday together!
