Amanda-Darling-Photography-Family-Photographer-SurreyHappy Monday friends,

Half term arrived with a tidal wave of relief and loud joy- no more exams!  We had a couple of days of luxuriously long lie-ins, leisurely lunches, and lovely walks.

Then we all packed up and went to the Isle of Wight for a few days. I have never been before- the only one of us that hadn’t- and was very excited. We had good weather and really enjoyed ourselves.

Some highlights from our trip:

  • A couple of years ago I decided that a holiday is only a holiday if it involves absolutely no cooking whatsoever, and I am glad to say that last week was a fantastic holiday!
  • The Isle of Wight has so much to do that we ran out of time, and will have to go back
  • Catching a ferry is fun when it’s only for a 45 minute crossing
  • The island has some stunning scenery- cliffs, rolling hills and valleys, pretty sailing towns, ornate Victorian Villas and really beautiful beaches
  • If you love fossil hunting then head to the Isle of Wight -it is a fossil hunter’s paradise

All in all a perfect place for a staycation. Hope you like the view from our balcony, above.

Have a lovely week everyone!
