I just had a night away, we were in Bournemouth, beautiful day sitting on the beach walking about, the beach and sea were an absolute delight, never been to Bournemouth before.

Great fun, we get to Hotel they say we can only put you up for one night not two, we can send you somewhere else, well we did not bother just stayed the one night, the hotel we booked late minute cheap, well we were supposed to have saved over a £100, if I was made to pay that for the room we had I would have gone mad.   Well, we had a swim in the pool that was nice, but the attitude and invisibility of the customer coming to stay at the hotel was unbelievable, anyway we had a good time together, burning ourselves at the beach, could not find a hanky for Dave’s head though, had not sat on a deck chair for years.

We were told there was a great Harry Ramsden on the front, we looked and found it, they have a veranda up high overlooking the beach, it was about 7pm, there were still swimmers in the sea and sun bathers all around, still very warm and our meal was welcoming, a lovely night was had.

Wish we could have stayed longer but this was just a night away while taking care of some business, a nice break especially with great company.

I walked a lot (although painful) I managed some slopes and about 14 lengths in the pool, great last time I went swimming I could not swim at all with the pain I was in so doing great (probably pay for it tomorrow in pain) must have been the company…………..
