All around we can hear excited voices, doors opening and closing, hairdryers and it is not quite 6am. By 6.30 I think everyone is awake. What early birds your children are!
Thought I would update you with a few photos from last night before the day begins.
We had a great evening playing games in the local park and then had hot chocolate before bed. Sleep times varied from 10.30 pm to 2 am. But no one is tired ( yet!) Breakfast at 8 am then on the coach to Fort Victoria.
Isle of Wight day 2 continued
9.15 am We are off, fed and watered and washed ( most of us!) on our way to Fort Victoria.
2.30 pm on our way to Allum Bay and loved the sweet and glass factories. We were very impressed how fibre optic was made.
4.50pm on our way back to Winchester House for dinner and a rest before our evening challenges led by the YMCA team.
Quotes of the day:
They are wild sheep! ( looking at sheep in a field)
Oh look, there's England over there!
But we are in England aren't we? (very confused voice)
Facts of the day:
- We all liked the breakfast buffet.
- We like singing on the coach.
- There are lots of diverted routes on the Isle due to the festival at the weekend. This does mean we have seen lots of the island!
- Miss Wright and Miss Whitlock are good at dancing ( with their arms) on the coach.
- We saw a wooden bowl with a piece missing called a Bleeding Bowl from the Mary Rose.
- We saw lots of items rescued by marine archaeologists that were 100 - 8000 years old.
- We found out lots of fishy facts in the aquarium and were delighted to find (3) nemos!
- The Bear has a wing ( it was a tail - when we were in the Planetarium)
- We are all tired, even those pretending not to be!
