On the last full day of my stay here, I boarded the bus that takes the coastal route all the way from Ryde in the east to the Needles headland in the West. I got lost a few times between the walking and finding the correct bus stop to get back on track, but I kept reminding myself of the old saying “Not all who wander are lost” and convinced myself that I was just wearily wandering, not necessarily lost. There is an Island Breezer bus (see pic below) that follows a more local route through the villages and points of interest in the western tip. This is fun and open at the top for better views.
