Everyone ate well last night, had a play on the beach, and were in bed for 9pm. Everyone was asleep by 9.20pm. Cooked breakie, toast and cereal this morning. We are now on our way to Osborne House.

Tuesday: We were wowed by Osborne House, and had the best time at the donkey sanctuary, grooming, feeding and leading the donkeys around. We played on the beach in the sunshine and had an evening of board games before bed at 9.20pm. Everyone is thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Shattered now! Just got back from Blackgang. Quite a few of the group put their hands up for having a nap before dinner! They have made lots of new friends and are absolutely loving it!
Mrs Horniman asked if Miss Goldsmith went for a nap too..... 'I wish' came the reply all too quickly!

Wednesday has been a very busy day - at Alum bay, we saw a glass-blowing demo and a sweet making demo, made sand sculptures and saw the Needles. At Blackgang Chine, we rode water flumes and water through Underwater Kingdome. In the evening, we brought our duvets down to the lounge for movie night and watched Peter Rabbit. We slept very well last night!

Thursday has been much more chilled. At Dinosaur Isle we enjoyed the exhibits and went fossil hunting on the beach. After, we walked to the traditional sweet shop to buy a few treats and had a sand sculpture competition on the beach. To finish, we danced the night away at the disco with DJ lee playing our requests.

Coach is loaded up, rooms empty. Everyone is enjoying their last breakfast at The Sands. Because we're ready so early Michael (our coach driver) is going to take us to the ferry via a scenic route over the top of Sandown. We'll stop at the services for lunch and our rough eta is 2pm.
