I love that we live in a place where so many people come for their holidays. No, I don't love the crowds, though they don't really bother me as I like the beach int he winter not in the summer, but I love the fact that Bournemouth and Poole do so much to enjoy in the summer.
Wednesday night we went to neighbouring Bournemouth to see the illuminations in the gardens and last night we went to see Poole's weekly firework show. We are so lucky that we have these things going on for free. Bournemouth also have a weekly firework show, on a Friday, and then there is the free four day air show to look forward to.
Nigel and I have both lived in Poole longer than we have lived anywhere else and we love Poole. The towns of Bournemouth and Poole are right next to each other and they are quite different in many ways. Apologies to everyone who lives in or prefers Bournemouth, but we are Poole fans. Poole is older, has a history, has a proper proper park (one of my favourite places anywhere in the world) has superb beaches, a chain ferry, a speedway stadium, a marina or two, a quay, the second largest natural harbour in the world, five magical islands, heathland, an old fashioned high street including a level crossing, a modern indoor shopping mall, an arts centre, SSSI land, nature reserves, .... do you detect I love my home town.
Anyway - we went to Baiter and enjoyed the Quay fireworks last night and I wanted to include a couple of poor photos.
Jen I wanted to say how fab it was to read all of your comments. Thank you. And we are seriously sorry we didn't visit Durham. Next time eh!
I have a nw page to share today from the holiday photos. The photo was taken on Lindisfarne and I just loved the colours and so tried to echo them.
I love this photo of Nigel and it is such a great reminder of a very happy and special day.
As ever - lots of sewing
