Sightseeing in the Isle of Wight

It was a sunnier second day in the Isle of Wight. We combined hiking with sightseeing. Discovery of the day: the newer buses have USB charging! How enlightened😊 Best local tip: for groups of 3-5, buy the day group saver if travelling on the buses. You can buy it on the bus. View photos Sightseeing in the Isle of Wight
