Andrea Black-Thompson arranged a photo shoot for her extended family when they visited the Island on a trip. We met on Ventnor Beach on an overcast day.

The South East Beach Cafe is situated right on the sand in Shanklin. Owned and run by Lee Pardy and Betty Almond, it is an expansion on a tiny cafe Lee had on the site previously. The Cafe has an amazing outlook with fully glazed doors opening out onto the Channel.
