Goy Friends on Holiday


As you may already know from Sandra’s blog we went on holiday together with our husbands to Bournemouth, here are a few more pictures you may like to see

We stayed at the Majestic hotel situated on the East Cliff, , a lovely mature area amid wide avenues lined with Pine Trees, the hotel was excellent with good food, accomadation, facilities , service and entertainment.

The sea front was just a 10 minutes pleasant walk away. opening onto lovely sandy beaches and panoramic views

The Hotel has an outdoor swimming pool [which needless to say we decided to give it a miss] but it was a very pleasant area to relax around and enjoy a welcome cuppa after our stroll to the beach

One of the highlights of the hoiday was our visit to Portsmouth so a few more pictures of the ships.

Nelson’s Flag Ship
H.M.S, Victory

Another impressive Naval Ship.

Cannon off the Victory.

Another enjoyable visit was a trip to Poole where we saw more boats , this time luxury Yatchts which really had the men drooling!

This one was the ferry over to the islands, it would have been nice to have a sail but we just didnt have the time!

So we had a little rest and a little laugh.

All to soon our holiday was over, but we have all these lovely pictures to keep the memories of a very happy holiday with our dear friends

So its goodbye from Sandra and Russell

And Goodbye from Harry and Carole. Hope you enjoyed;0))

Nice memories, didn't mention we were freezing on the pier in those Deckchairs ! Lol..hence my windproof cagoule.:o) ...lovely views of the beach all passed far too quickly ...and Diane,the masts were taken down in 2010 for repair,so I'm sure they will be back soon in all their splendour ,I hope so anyway..

Lovely. I was down there last weekend as well, and have a photo of me in front of the sunseeker boat at Poole Quay. Wonder if we were there at the same time ? There is so much to see down there I want to go again.
