After a slow start we drove across the island to the Needles. Katie and Roo went on the cable car while Rootwo and I played dinosaur golf. The Needles attraction felt over commercialised and overpriced. So, of course we paid through the nose for several crappy glass jars full of sand.

On the way home we visited Isle of Wight Pearl and Rootwo dressed as the queen.

We spent the rest of the afternoon on Ventnor beach. Later, Claire and Drew came round for drinks.
