Tuesday 20th May
10:00am; We had a fantastic evening at the beach after having a little mooch around the arcade. The kids played ‘family it’. They were amazing at bed time and everyone went to bed like good children and straight to sleep. We’ve had a hearty breakfast of cereal and toast and eggs and now getting on the coach to go to Robin Hill Adventure Park, packed lunch on board. The weather is mixed so we have sun cream and raincoats with us for every eventuality!!
All the children are really happy and having a wonderful time!

12:00pm; Having a lovely time at Robin Hill Adventure Park! We have been in a 4D Cinema, a giant pirate ship swing, a wooden maze, a climbing tower and we are now on the 1/4 mile toboggan run!! Picnic lunch will be had shortly and then we are off to the owl show!
The weather is dry but slightly chilly. However, the children don’t seem to notice as they are running around happily!

5:00pm; Children having a great time. Watch out for a written update later.

8:00pm; We had a lovely day at the park. There was lots to do and lots of fun. Now we are back at the hotel and writing diaries. After dinner we are going to the beach to make some sand sculptures. The weather forecast tomorrow says it is going to be sunny!
