Welcome to the Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight has been a holiday destination since the Victorian times. So if it was good enough for the inhabitants of my (second) favourite historical period, it was certainly good enough for me.
Ventnor – Isle of Wight
The beaches on the Isle of Wight range from powdery demerara sand to smooth warm pebbles. A firm believer in getting my feet wet, I braved the hypothermic waters. Although it’s no Indian Ocean, I think you could probably get away with going for a dip midsummer; something I am committed to doing on my next visit.
I could go on. But I think I’ve said enough. And you can look at the pictures before reaching for the phone and dialing an appropriate travelling partner. Maybe open with “So… fancy some apple fritters?”
