We have returned from our Big Summer Holiday, and I want to go back! Our family adventure this year took us to Poole in Dorset. We stayed in a privately owned caravan (not ours!) on the Haven Rockley Park site. It was a lovely little place, although we found that it is not very easy for wheelchair users to navigate.
We had a fantastic week away from home. I love caravan holidays, but I had to practically drag my husband over the threshold, as he continues to insist that he doesn’t like portable holiday homes. For me the caravan holds precious memories of childhood holidays, and I am creating new memories with my own children on these family excursions. Their dad just has to like it or lump it!
We took our dog on holiday, and the caravan owner very kindly accommodated him. He absolutely loved digging up the beaches and swimming in the sea. It was lovely to see him behaving like a puppy again, running around and being daft. The only problem was he kept digging up my sandcastles! I will share more stories about Baxter later.
All in all, we had a lovely time away. We explored the English Heritage castle on the Isle of Portland, we visited Portland Bill lighthouse, we explored a few beaches, and we enjoyed a harbour cruise in Poole. We also took our children to Paultons Theme Park and Peppa Pig World, which deserves a whole new blog post because it was such an awesome day.
