Hello Everyone

I wanted to share my Fun day at the beach with you.

We travelled by Minibus to Bournemouth with stops at the services for drinks and Breakfast which felt like going on holiday.

When we got to Bournemouth, I couldn’t believe how much it had change there was a Big wheel on the beach and lots of attractions, but the beach was still clean and still look amazing as I remembered.

Why on the beach relaxing in a deck chair while watching a lot of Cheer leading dancers practicing their routine on the beach ready for a competition at the Bic the balancing act ware amazing.

Its had been years since I’ve been to the Beach and I totally enjoyed it bringing back memories of Holidays with My Family.

I struggled to walk on the sand to have a paddle in the sea as it was very soft so Activities brought buckets of sea water to me so I could have a paddle.

We all enjoyed Harry Ramsden Fish and chips on the beach for Lunch.

I totally enjoyed the whole day.

I would like to Thank the Activities Team for a lovely day

Thank you for reading my Blog

From Nancy
