The Needles, Isle of Wight

The Needles is a unique row of chalk stacks that rise out of the sea off of the western edge of the Isle of Wight, England. When we went to view them, the wind was so strong that I was rather concerned that we would get whisked away. At one point my husband’s camera strap was blown off his neck (this concerned him more than being near the edge of a cliff even though he is terrified of heights).

The little building at the end of the Needles is a lighthouse that was built in 1859

The Needles are an amazing sight and well worth a visit, just be sure to hold on to your camera if the wind is up.
