Today was a free day (Paul coach driver had his day off) and Ian and I decided to walk the mile into Bournemouth to see what the German market was like. On the way we came across this small memorial to Flt Lt Jon Egging one of the Red Arrows pilots who died at the Bournemouth Air show in 2011.
Reaching Bournemouth Pier we thought we may as well have a walk to the end. Got a glimpse of our hotel in the distance.

|Looks like Ian made a friend|
|At least we could get a drink.|
Nothing much to see or do so after a walk round the town center, lunch at Subways it was off to Sea life to pass the time.
|The otters were lovely. Worth the £8.50 entrance fee just to see them.|
|This one kept us amused by playing with a stone.|
|Feeding time for the turtles|
Heading back to the hotel we again walked through the park. Here Ian became the best friend of the local squirrel population.
We also spied the rats after a free meal of the peanuts the public were feeding to the squirrels.
It's now coming up to 6pm and a bucks fizz pre dinner drink is happening in the bar so I suppose I should sign off and show my face. This will be my last post again until our new data allowance starts on the 28th (still don't know how we managed to use 14GB of data in 14 days. )
