Our last full day on the island and what a day!
We began our day with a coach trip right across the island to Alum Bay where we were met by Mr O' Brien and Mrs Manston. 188 steps later and we were on the beach ready to join the boat for a trip around the Needles. Back on dry land we had a lovely walk along the cliff path to the old battery for a picnic lunch.
After lunch, we visited the sand shop to see how the coloured sands are used to create decorations. While in Alum Bay, we also had a glass blowing demonstration where we learned how glass is made and blown into a thousand different shapes.
From Alum Bay we drove back on the famous Military Road to Shanklin where we spent the last of our money at the rock shop (to stock up on those vital supplies!)
After dinner, was the infamous theatre show. An hour and a half of singing and dancing later, we dragged ourselves back to the hotel for hot chocolate and bed.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
