30 Days Wild – Days 2-6 St Helens Isle of Wight

DSC00851

Baby-Gusto and I spent the past few days (and the tail-end of the half term break) at Nodes Point holiday camp on the Isle of Wight. The weather was magnificent, and it was the perfect place for our 30 Days Wild Challenge. I did not take the laptop with me- a challenge for both of us who seem to spend quite a bit of time surfing the interwebs – and the screen time break was quite simply wonderful.

Nodes Point is right on Duver beach in St Helens. It is a lovely little beach, sandy and with rocky outcrops that we took full advantage of for wildlife spotting.

Very enjoyable weekend, and it was just so much fun to play in the sea and sand.
