Poole and Bournemouth

Hi all, after our trip to Monkey World and the Tank Museum, the following day, Friday, we went to Swanage to find a bench on the pier that had a plaque with my fathers' name on. He was a lifelong diver and they put the name plate on after he died, as a rememberance. The weather was dreadful, really misty and raining, we found the bench then had a look around Swanage but there isn't too much there. We then decided to go Poole and we spent the rest of the day in and out of charity shops, well I did anyway, hubby tagged along and we were ducking and diving out of the rain. After breakfast on Saturday we thought we'd go to Bournemouth and have a walk along the beach. It was tipping it down and it must have been a force 8 gale, alright slight exaggeration on my part, force 7 then. I've put a couple of pictures here of us with all our gear on fighting the wind and rain. It was a 45 min walk from the car park to the town centre then we hit the shops, then another 45 min walk back to the car park. In the car park there was a restaurant so we had a quick bite to eat then we left for home. It took about 2 hrs in all. It was a nice break but back to work on Tuesday.Back to normal Sunday with cooking, cleaning and dog walking. Bye for now off to wash my hair and get ready for choir later. Linda x
