Isle of Wight Day 1

Hello, Crafters.

We couldn't have asked for better weather yesterday! 

By the time we arrived in Lymington to catch the ferry over to the Isle of Wight, the sun was shining and just a few clouds in the sky. 

The sea was amazingly calm and hubby arrived on the Island no worse for wear despite not having any sea legs. 

We checked into the guest house called Foxhills, which is in Shanklin.

After we had unpacked, we took a walk around the town, and came back to our room for a rest - we'd been up since 5am! 

Did you know all the swans in the UK belong to the Queen?
At 3.30pm we were off again to investigate the beach and the seafront. 

We had an early dinner at 5.30pm at a Thai restauraunt - excellent - and then we went to visit the Shanklin Chine, which is best seen after dark because of all the lights.

Five minutes before we left to make our way back to the guest house, the sky opened!

 We were soaked by the time we made it back to our room. 

Despite this finale, it was a great day. 

We're about to set off to visit the Needles and Alum Bay now, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
