The Wonders of the Isle of Wight with David & Ase

  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.

We boarded the boat and set off for a cruise passing various land marks on our way. We saw the sea caves at Cape Greko and the Blue Lagoon where you could get off and swim in the beautiful turquoise waters. We also saw Lovers Bridge and Famagusta View Point where you can see the abandoned city of Varosha from a distance. 

 We danced and sang to amazing tribute from Bob Marley, the Blues Brothers, ABBA, Michael Jackson and even a drag queen act.

 Some of us even performed karaoke.

In Konnos Bay we sat and had a drink and ice-cream admiring the stunning views over the bay. Next stop was Nissi Beach which has a reputation as a true paradise destination with its stunning golden sand beach with lots of music playing and the beach bars providing great food. 

We headed to The Ayia Napa Sculpture Park on the way to Protaras. The park features stunning works of art from International Artists all displayed in an open air museum. We walked around the museum and enjoyed the beautiful sculptures. 

Along the strip we visited the souvenir and gift shops, a chance for the everyone to buy gifts to take home. 

We enjoyed relaxing around the pool on our loungers and swim in the pool was a great way to cool off! 

What a fantastic holiday, full of great memories!

We were lucky enough to share a train ride around |Butlins with the ‘red coats’ which was a great experience!

Everyone enjoyed the photo shoot with the famous Red Coat!

Our entertainment in the evening's were fantastic. We saw many shows and tributes with amazingly talented singers and dancers.

Ten Pin bowling was a great laugh and everyone achieved smashing scores!

Crazy golf was our next venture, the course is set around a pirate ship and has 9 holes. 

We had a lovely day in the picturesque village of Lynmouth which sits in a gorge 700 feet below Lynton.

We enjoyed a walk around the village and along the sea front before had a ride on the cliff railway to Lynton which consists of two cable connected cars by gravity, using water tanks which rises upwards 700 feet. What a view from the top, absolutely breathtaking.
