Win a Fluming good time at Splashdown

Do you love water flumes? I am a big fan of Splashdown Poole.  During term time Eliza has her swimming lessons in the Buccaneers Bay and her favourite lesson is the end of term when they get to have fun in Little Buccaneers Splash Zone with a starter flume and a water play area.

The range of bears seemed to please both the …

Sunday saw a brief break in the weather, there may even have been a bit of sunshine, so we headed off in search of some fresh air. With warnings to stay away …

#TeamHonkRelay – The Bournemouth Leg

As soon as heard about Team Honk’s ambitious plan to get bloggers to pass a relay baton around the country from Lands End to John O’Groats I wanted to be part of it. If I am honest the date came round extremely quickly and caught me a little by surprise.  I had initially volunteered to Kayak through Poole Harbour but the recent storms and flooding put pay to that idea.  I also made enquiries about taking the baton by boat, but unfortunately this didn’t get off the ground either, as did the ambitious idea to do the baton handover aboard …
