The Wonders of the Isle of Wight
Our evenings were filled with a range of fantastic shows which ranged from live bands and tribute act. This was the perfect opportunity for us to show off our brilliant dance moves!
We boarded the minibus and with great sunny weather we drove across the island to Osborne House.
The house and gardens looked stunning in the glorious sunshine and we enjoyed learning about its history. We took a bus to where Queen Victoria's children used to go to the beach.
We did a spot of tenpin bowling and everybody played really well with some successful strikes.
Our next place of interest was to visit Quarry Abbey where we had the most delightful sandwiches made with the Monks own produce such as free range eggs. We visited the Abbey's own pigs before the drive back.
At the Needles we stopped for photos before making our way to the glass factory where we saw bespoke glass blowing. We found it really fascinating. Some of us filled ornate glass jars with different coloured sands as a lovely souvenir.
Arriving via Ventnor to The Donkey Sanctuary where we all patted and fed the donkeys. We were amazed at how old some of them were.
