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.
