We are lucky to live in the wild west of the Isle of Wight, it suffers from the worst of the storms and high winds reached 99mph at the Needles last winter. With some of the highest cliffs on the island, it also has some of the most low level areas and inland river too, we were just a few metres away from the floods last winter, eek!
But after all the extremes, the ones I like are the extreme sun sets that we have, the view from Totland and Colwell on the westerly tip of the island, are always beautiful in the evening no matter the weather or time of the year, so we often take our dinner in the car and eat it looking at the view of the sea and the sky. Sometimes venturing out for a little stroll on the beach, sometimes not.
There was also a big landslip here and the sea wall collapsed, nature sure is an expensive business here too...so much of the island has to be constantly repaired after land corrosion, some people even lost their homes.
We love it here though, with all it's issues, the Isle of Wight will always be a really special place like no other. 360 degree costal views and every beach looks different : )
