See you in a fortnight or so...............

Tomorrow morning we'll head off with our trailer tent for almost two weeks holiday to Swanage in Dorset.

The beauty of living at the start of the West Country is we can be at most seaside locations within a couple of hours or so and many of them without having to touch a motorway

I've not been to Swanage before although I have visited quite a bit of the surrounding area in the dim and distant past

I understand it's a family orientated place with safe sandy beaches

Nigel is delighted that a preserved steam railway runs directly behind the campsite

The kids are getting excited about doing a bit of sea kayaking

And as for me...........................

well park me up in one of these with a bit of handstitching or a good book and I'll keep myself occupied for ever :o)

See you all in two weeks then.........................

That doesn't look anything like the Swanage that DH and I knew. It's grown up! Have a great time and R-E-L-A-X.
