Isle of Wight Day 1

26th June 2017
Day 1
 
After leaving school just after 8.30am, we enjoyed a couple of breaks and lunch before heading to Portsmouth. Our tour round HMS Victory was excellent with its recent refurbishment. There was more to see this time!
 
We managed to board a slightly earlier ferry from Portsmouth to Ryde and made the most of the glorious sunshine by sitting on the open deck!  For about half of us, it was our first time on a ferry.  We saw a range of sailing boats, a cruise ship and a hovercraft during our crossing. 
 
On arrival at our hotel, we had dinner and then unpacked before getting ready for bed.
 
We thanked our driver, Dave, for his careful driving today. 
 
Everyone enjoyed their first day and the food went down really well!  It has been a long, tiring day... everyone was keen to go to bed!
 
"One of the best days of my life!"
 
"The best beefburger ever!"
