Touristing in the UK

After a week of STCW, I had a week of touristing around the Isle of White.

My first day off I took the bus out to the needles historic battery and light house.  This is the fortification that defends the western end of the Solent.  I really enjoyed my walk around there.

I also went to Alum Bay, which is next door to the Needles.  This is the site of a very old glass foundary.  They have coloured sand there that has used in glass making for many years.

Here's some pics:
