FOWC with Fandango — Resort

I shall have to resort to writing about holiday resorts.

Poole in Dorset is my home town. We have Europe’s largest Natural Harbour (technically it’s the largest in the world now since Sydney added a manmade bit) and some fantastic coastline scenery. Brownsea Island, the largest in the harbour, is home to a red squirrel colony, and if you like big boats, you will find plenty of Sunseeker yachts worth over a million quid each berthed opposite the Quay.
It is a beautiful place to visit, you’re not far from Bournemouth, Weymouth, Swanage, or the New Forest, so there is plenty to see on your trip.
I can thoroughly recommend Monkey World and Compton Acres, and West Bay just outside of Bridport used to do the best pasties and chips in the county.
As for living there, it grew too expensive for our pocket, too fast and furious with traffic and ever growing supermarkets, and when it took over an hour to travel the two miles coming home from work, well, you get the picture.

Now we are living on the Lincolnshire Coast and there are a fair few holiday resorts here too. We are lucky not to be too close to the entertainment arcades, but we are just a few minutes walk from the beach, which is open to dogs all year on our side.
Thankfully, we don’t have Butlins on our doorstep.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Ah, commercialism. It takes good things and make them go askew.

  2. I moved to the country and was delighted as it took no time to get anywhere due to the lack of traffic but since I have been here there has been continual development. At the moment it is getting silly, how can it make sense to put a new development of 1200 houses next to an already existing village which is considerably smaller. If a builder bends over and shows the crack of his bum someone applies for planning permission for a two bed semi in his trousers!
