The Weekend (Freshwater & Isle of Wight Lavender farm)

My parents visited us for the weekend and we had a lovely time travelling to various places on the Isle of Wight and spending time together.

Freshwater BayOn Saturday we visited Freshwater and walked part of the Tennyson trail.

Freshwater Bull and CowsThere are two ways to walk from Freshwater Bay onto the trail, and we chose the route through the field fulls of cows and at least one bull!

Tennyson Monument at FreshwaterWe enjoyed the dramatic view of the waves crashing upon Freshwater beach over cups of tea. That night we ate out at a local Indian restaurant.

Lavender Farm GardenOn Sunday we visited a local Lavender farm, Sandown and St Helens.At the farm, I took a few minutes to enjoy their garden.
