After a full day of walking I was back at my car. Shall I just go to bed? Nope, there is still one attraction to see. Buying a ticket for Shanklin Chine gives you unlimited visits for seven days. It is open until 9pm. The lights go on at dusk, and it turns into a Fairyland. At 8pm it was boots on and off I go again, in the dark. I entered it at the top next to the waterfall. The colours are constantly changing as you walk through it. It's a delightful work of art. 
The little stone bridge changed colours several times. 

I'll say one thing about this camera, it picks up colours beautifully. No editing needed.

A few other people were also walking through. It was quite eerie to see shadows in the gloom. 

I didn't make a video because it would have been too risky on the steps of the slippery wooden walkway, and not being able to see my feet. I needed to hold onto the handrail. What a perfect finish to a lovely day. 
Come back tomorrow to see where I went next. Two days left. Toodle pip.   ilona
