    West Wight Alpacas

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 59 °F

    Alpacas are one of my favourite creatures - they are just so cute & funny to watch ! So of course I had to have some on the itinerary when we were on on our trip ! We could wander along the sides of the paddocks & see the various groups of them easily.

    The Needles

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

    We drove along the South Coast of the Island and stopped off at the Needles - mainly fun fair & touristy shops but Mum & I enjoyed going on the chair lift to see the Needles themselves & the sand strata on the cliffs above the beach. Obviously we had to create an ornament with the different colours of sand in layers too !Read more

    Spinnaker Tower

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    We met Mum & Dad off their trains from Hastings at Portsmouth Harbour Station and went to have lunch at the base of the Spinnaker Tower. Rich had booked us a trip up the Spinnaker Tower and we had lovely sunny weather so we could see right out over the Solent to the Isle of Wight and right & left along the Hampshire coastline.One of the dares was to look down through the glass floor panel - we decided to lie down for a photo !Read more

    This model village was amazing - the scaled down buildings, scenery, railways and figures was so meticulously created - the photos almost look like they are life sized !
