Isle of Wight delights

42 members have returned from an excellent week away in the Isle of Wight.  An excellent tour of gardens and attractions filled the week.  The weather behaved and we only needed our raincoats on one occasion.

We stayed at the Ocean View Hotel in sunny Shanklin.  We visited Nunwell House & Gardens after a tour of the coast and a lunch break in Ryde.  Then Osborne House and grounds on Tuesday.  Wednesday we had a couple of hours shopping in Newport before an afternoon spent at Ventnor Botanical Gardens.  Thursday we dodged the showers to see the beautiful gardens at Mottistone Manor and Friday was a stop at the pretty village of Godshill before a ride on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.
