The Wonders of the Isle of Wight
The infamous landmark, The Needles was an incredible sight as the white chalk pointed out of the beautiful blue sea. We visited the sand shop where we got to fill little ornaments with the different brightly coloured sand.
We made sure we bought some souvenirs to take home to remind us of our brilliant holiday.
We spent a very interesting afternoon watching a demonstration on glass blowing. It was really fascinating and we watched a vase being made straight from scratch.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the picturesque village of Godshill. Here they have a miniature model village which is a replica of Godshill itself. There were lots of miniature village scenes and the attention to detail is amazing and so lifelike.
Stopping off at the Donkey Sanctuary was a lovely way to end the afternoon. We were allowed to stroke and feed them which was a wonderful experience. We all agreed that the staff did a wonderful job looking after these rescued animals.
A great morning on board The White Line, which took us through Cowes, where we had incredible views of all the sailing boats. We sailed past the Spinicare Tower, which our Captain told us was the tallest building on the south coast and cost a staggering £30 million to build! We continued our journey to Portsmouth harbour and got a glimpse of the British war fleet.
We always look forward to the fabulous evening entertainment. We were treated to live shows every night from a Motown tribute act to a super Country and Western singer. Without fail we were always up on the dance floor, partying the night away.
