Isle of Wight – Day 2

Hooray! The sun shone for most of the day, apart from when it rained in Ryde.

We decided to go back in time and took a journey on the Island’s steam railway.



A visit to the Isle of Wight should always include Cowes, the home of sailing. So lunch in Cowes before moving onto Ryde where a photo of a hover craft is always a must – sad or what?


Forgot to mention, we stopped off a the church previously frequented by Queen Victoria and where he daughter Beatrice is entombed.


The final stop of the day having passed through Sandown, and I mean ‘passed through’, was Godsill. They sell great ginger beer in Godsill and have their own Chocolate Island where they make all their own chocolate. I was very good and didn’t buy any chocolate though, I was full after the scones, jam and clotted cream!
