Last year we visited The Isle of Wight and I took this photo of "The Needles".
The following text is taken from The Needles website.
"The name 'Needles' is believed to have been derived from a slender tapering rock pinnacle which was formerly situated a little to the north (i.e. on the Alum Bay side) of the present central rock. This needle-shaped rock, about 120ft high and known as 'Lot's Wife' collapsed into the sea in 1764 with a crash which was said to have been heard many miles away! The stump of this pinnacle can still be seen at low water where it forms a dangerous reef."

Yesterday husband and I decided we would go to a local Mall as I particularly wanted to visit a Hobbycraft shop. It was a lovely day, blue skies and sunshine though a little colder than of late and I decided that I would cling on to summer for a bit longer and wore light weight clothes and sandals. I did stick out a bit like a sore thumb as most other people were wearing autumn colours and coats, but it is only mid October and I did have a jacket.
I visited the hobby shop and had a good look around and then we went to a couple more shops and stopped for coffee. We then decided to head nearer to home and pop into a local hostelry for lunch. The sun was still shining and it was definitely warmer than the morning had been. We parked the car and walked into the hotel to see a Christmas tree, fully decorated, stood in the hallway!
I should have asked why so early, but didn't and can only assume that because the owners have only recently taken over it is their way of promoting Christmas Day lunch. It's still a bit early for decorations though, isn't it? Or is it just me - perhaps I had better get my winter clothes out!
