Blackgang Chine...

3 Sep 2013




















On Sunday Elizabeth and I went to visit a friend on the Isle of Wight and went to Blackgang Chine for the day. Archie spent the day with his dad so it was nice to just spend some time alone with my girl. We had such a great time, Elizabeth loved it there and was probably just the right age to appreciate all the lands of imagination. She especially loved the cowboy town and the super fast slides on the snakes and ladders.

I'm not sure its really changed much since I used to go when I was small (I used to live on the island!) though I appreciate the wonderful views a bit more now. I think I might have to go back with the boy next summer!

  3. I had NO idea this place existed - Wow! Yet another reason I'm glad I've found your blog. How frustrating that I think I will have to wait for the small boy to grow a bit before he will appreciate it!

  7. We took our eldest when he was little - can't believe how much how familiar it looks after quite a few years. Beautiful photos. Claire xo
