The Wonders of the Isle of Wight with Andy & Isobel

   The Wonders of the Isle of Wight   

In the evening we wasted no time in getting on the dance floor and spent the rest of the evening enjoying the incredible entertainments.

At the Needles we went up to the viewing platform and admired the stunning views of the famous landmark.

As a souvenir we enjoyed making sand glass ornaments with all the different coloured sands.

We watched the glass blowers who made some lovely bowls and vases follow by a visit to the sweet factory where we watched the sweet maker demonstrating how he made Rhubarb and Custard sweets and we were lucky enough to try these delicious sweets!

On the way back to our hotel we stopped at Freshwater Bay on the cliff top and admired the spectacular views!

We visited Quarr Abbey, this is home to a small group of Benedictine Monks. We sat and had our lunch before visiting the chapel and the visitors centre which some of the group attempted to create their own stain glassed window using a puzzle in the centre. 

At Ten Pin Bowling we had a fantastic game with lots of strikes and some great high scores. Well done to the all group for their great effort and brilliant sportsmanship! 

After a cruise around the Isle of Wight to Portsmouth we drove along the coastline to Shanklin Beach, where we enjoyed an ice cream sitting on the beach. Some of us couldn't resist a paddle in the sea, what a wonderful day!
