Here are a few highlights (and lots of photos!)
We came back very relaxed, but began wandering around a sculpture park in a disused quarry on Portland.
Some sculptures were small
Some were crying out for a photo opportunity
and others were just funny
We enjoyed the day and so did the kids.
One one day we managed to wangle some time with just the two of us, as my sister took the kids to a water park. We went on a far more sedate trip cruising around Poole harbour, visiting Brownsea Island on our journey. It contains a castle alas not open to the public...
but with a coffee shop and gloriously warm terrace
We saw the site where the first scout camp took place, marked by this stone
and got fabulous views of the Studland coast with Old Harry rocks.
And the rest of the time we lazed on the beach
went hunting for driftwood on chesil beach
looked for blackberries (not yet ripe this year)
spent time with Mum and Dad
and caught views of beautiful wildlife.
A lovely holiday :)
