Isle Of Wight

Last weekend I went on a little trip to the Isle of Wight with my family. I have been going to the island for as long as I can remember as we have a little holiday house down there which is normally rented out. When I was younger I remember going at least once a month for a little weekend getaway. However, as me and my brother got older we began going less and less due to social things, work and generally being moody teenagers who couldn't think of anything worse than being stuck on a remote island with just each other for company. However, as we have grown up a bit now, I like to think, we have come to appreciate what a beautiful place it is and how nice it is to pop off for the weekend to be by the seaside, a far cry from middle-of-the-county-Nottingham!

We didn't really do anything of significance, just nice little walks on the beach and trips to picturesque towns and tea and cakes in coffee shops. Obviously though it is definitely much better when the sun shines and on Saturday we were lucky enough to have glorious weather, me and mum even 'sunbathed' (not quite warm enough for a bikini yet) in the garden. Here are a few little photos I got while I was there.

  2. How is it that I live in the UK and have never been to the Isle of Wight?! Great pictures, I especially love the 11th one looking under the arch and out to sea, just gorgeous :)
