Locals just call it “the Island”
I’m finally getting around to organising my photographs and the shots from the Isle of Wight are rapidly appearing on Flickr:
Did you know there was an Isle of Wight County in Virginia? I first realised that I might have gone astray when I saw that “the Isle of Wight Museum offers Indian artifacts, Civil War memorabilia, prehistoric fossils from the nearby James River, and a re-created nineteenth century country store.”
And no, it’s not an island although it does at least have a port.
