A circular, stroll-(1-2-hours) coast walk in England starting at Niton High Street, Isle of Wight, about 5km (roughly 3 miles) long and suitable for families with children, prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.
A gentle walk, with a climb up a road on the way back, to the Isle of Wight's most southerly point. The lighthouse was built in 1838 and can be toured if you contact the lighthousekeeper in advance. There are plenty of opportunities for birdwatching on the undercliff. The terrain is mainly track and fields, and the coastal views are impressive. The No6 bus only runs in the daytime so start early and leave yourself time for a pint in the Buddle Inn.

The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
