Today we went to the Heavy Horse Centre.  We had a look round at all the large horses and fed them.  We saw the tiny ponys that were no bigger than a dog!  They are very cute.  We fed the goats who were more interested in eating our bags and clothes! After a picnic lunch some of us had a go at driving a tractor, it was brilliant fun.  We also saw donkeys, turkeys, rabbits and pigs.  To round the day off we had a ride in a horse drawn cart and john went on the tractor and trailer.  In the evening David and Sarah won the bingo then we danced at the disco.

This morning we went on the swanage railway.  We had a steam train ride to Swanage where we walked down to the sea front and sat by the sea to have our picnic.  It was lovely and warm so some of us had ice creams too.  After lunch we wondered round the shops to get a few gifts, souveniers and postcards.  We walked back up to the station to catch the steam train back to Norton.  We had fabulous views of Corfe Castle.  When we got back to the hotel we were joined by Becky a new holiday maker.  That evening we had Carols quiz night. Carolyn won the bingo but we didn't manage to win any quizzes.
