Isle of Wight Day 2

Hello, Crafters.

I cannot believe how blessed we have been with the weather so far. 

Yesterday was another glorious sunny day. 

We took a drive to the most south-westerly tip of the Island to Alum Bay and the Needles. 
We took a trip on the chair lift at the Needles down to Alum Bay, and it was scary! 

It started off with us travelling very sedately over trees, and in no time at all we were over the edge of the cliff and quite a sharp drop down to the beach! 
It was a bit like painting when card making - I was holding my breath!  

Alum Bay is famous for it's coloured sands; apparently there are at least twenty two different colours!

We took a boat trip out to the Needles and the lighthouse, which is now operated electronic on the mainland nowadays. 

Hubby was fine on the boat, despite that it wasn't quite as calm as the ferry on the way over!

I'll share more with you about the coloured sands tomorrow!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
