Isle of Wight Hol- Day 1

Today was the first day of our old school retro holiday to the beachy Isle of Wight. Our ferry was at 9:30 but we couldn’t check into our cottage until 4pm so we had lots of time to waste!

We drove straight to Shanklin Chine located right by Shanklin beach. It was a really pretty nature area with lots of pathways through trees and over bridges. Spence walked the majority of it himself, only wanting to be picked up towards the end.

Our farm cottage is right in the centre of the island and completely surrounded by countryside. Nearby there are chickens, cows and a lake to walk around. We met our neighbours who also arrived today and have three girls- Tiger, Holly and Willow. Spence made friends with Holly and Willow, who are 5 and 8 years old. We sat outside the cottages having a few drinks with them while the kids played, was so cute!!

Bad news- it’s supposed to rain tomorrow!
