Isle Of Wight Coast 1/8

This is the first of a series of pictures I took along the coastline of the Isle of Wight during our June holiday, this one being at Alum Bay, the site of the famous Needles lighthouse. This is at the top of a quite high cliff and the chair lift takes one down to the beach below, at a price, which is famous for the layers of different coloured sands in the cliff itself. Before you ask, no we didn’t!!

A very interesting, and I'm sure practical contraption Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, but not my choice of transport.

That is a wonderful view and I think it is great to have the walk down and the ride back up smile
Brian Walbey: I'm afraid I would have to walk down and back up, and I think Maureen feels the same.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.
Quite an easy way to come back from the beach Brian...Fine capture!
Brian Walbey: Sadly not my choice of transport though Richard.
I went down a chairlift like this from Arthur's Seat in Australia. I am terrified of heights but after a few minutes, enjoyed it very much.
Brian Walbey: I'm sad to say that there is no way I would get on one of these things, mind you I did walk down to the bottom and back up many years ago before they even had this thing.
I'm sure we had to climb down when I was there some long time ago, no wonder everyone is getting fatter
Brian Walbey: I think it has been there a while, but it's not our type of transport so we stayed at the top.

They don't look excited, Brian
Brian Walbey: I certainly wouldn't be excited to go on that thing Richard.

I bet the view from the those seats is amazing.
Brian Walbey: I couldn't say Hollie, I wouldn't go on that for anything.
I went on this but Ange wouldn't
Brian Walbey: neither of us fancied going on it so we stayed at the top. Mind you I went down the bottom years ago when my parents took me there as a youngster.

I remember getting a small lighthouse-shaped glass tube when I was a very small tube and that was filled with layers of different coloured sands. Well, it was until some came out, allowing the rest to mix freely! Happy memories from seeing this. I refuse to pay the price of the chairlift and will walk up the cliff instead.
Brian Walbey: Ditto the sand filled lighthouse from my childhood days. I seem to remember some time after we'd returned home I decided to turn it upside down, need I say more, Mum and dad weren't too pleased!

You could have sent Maureen down, Brian, on pretext that you wanted a shot of her in the chair.
Brian Walbey: I don't think she was much more keen than I was to be honest Ray. We have been down, on foot, many years ago.
