Our SUN £9.50 holiday cannot be not be called a proper holiday until we’ve been to the beach according to The Nigel Ultimate Guide to £9.50 Sun Holidays. He just wouldn’t leave it until I agreed that we could go to Hengistbury Beach on the Mudeford Ferry.
However, although the “voyage” didn’t last more than ten minutes, poor Nigel missed out on the lovely vistas of the sea and the beach huts …….
……… having succumbed to a particularly nasty bout of sea sickness. He had “packed away” a very substantial “full English” back at the caravan, before setting sail, which may have had some bearing on Nigel’s state. However I embraced the experience enough for both of us and thankfully, once back on terra beach, Nigel soon perked up.
While Nigel happily built sandcastles, I went to look at the beach huts…….
…… and decided that if I ever win the lottery I would like to buy or rent one ……
They made me come over all Enid Blyton …… I admit I did peep through some of the windows …..they were soooooo romantic. If I had one I would decorate it with sea shells and seaside ephemera and would be happy as the day is long!
I also took the opportunity to collect my last holey stones of the year …. it seemed odd to be thinking of Christmas in such surroundings, but I did think that I could give one or two to special people as a Christmas present.
