Yes, just about! On the other side of the road is a 'view point' looking down over Sandown, Shanklin and the English Channel. A place where old people drive to in their cars on Sundays and sit and read the newspaper oblivious of their glorious surroundings! Love it!
Hopefully with a cup of tea from a thermos flask sitting on the dashboard and steaming up the windscreen. I'll get over there one day. I want to see if it matches what's in my imagination. Islands are always a bit unusual. The light in your photos makes the place look rather surreal.
It feels like a small, manageable, self-contained country! We were over there working in an enamelling factory again in Newport for 9 days and got very lucky with the weather over the weekend. I'd thoroughly recommend it for a prehistoric tour as most things are within minutes of each other, though not many stones it has to be said.
Ha! Sorry for the delay. Mrs C has an arts commission for a Macmillan Cancer Unit at Runcorn Hospital. The main piece is a large 5m wide x 2.5m high enamelled illustration divided into 5 separate panels. AJ Wells is the factory where we were working. They do most of the signage for London Underground, but they also work with a lot of artists on art installations, etc. Worth getting in touch with them as they're very helpful and friendly!
