The view from the searchlight position.
We then walked back to the top of the cliff to the New Battery and had a look around there at all the details of the rocket testing.
Having a rest and enjoying the view on the way back up the cliff - boy it was steep!
Even though it was a lovely day, it was a bit too nippy and windy to have our picnic outside. However, there was a convenient picnic room at the New Battery, so we got our food out and ate it there.
We then walked the half mile back to the bus stop and reboarded the bus back to Yarmouth. When we arrived back, Penny suggested that we stayed on and did the whole loop again, without getting off, so that we could really appreciate the views. There was a taped commentary running as well, which told you what you were looking at and it was very enjoyable.
Whilst we had been at Alum Bay, Penny bought Hugh this hat as his ears had been getting very cold in the wind! He wore it quite a lot for the rest of the holiday, so it was a good purchase!
When we arrived back at the cottage we were exhausted from all the fresh air and walking we had done, so Penny treated us to tea - Kentucky Fried Chicken!
