Today we went to the Heavy Horse Centre.  The Horses were lovely, we fed them with some horse food and brushed a tiny pony.  We also had a ride on a horse and cart.  After our picnic lunch we listened to the story of how the horses all came to be at the centre.  Then we went on a tractor ride which was great fun and very bumpy.  We had a look round at all the other animals, Becky and Amy went on the go-karts and several of us tried the death slide.  That evening we have a great time dancing to the live singer Jane.
Tuesday 9th August

Today we all voted for a day at the beach.  We went down to Boscombe beach and set ourselves up.  Some of us went in the cafe and got milkshakes and ice creams.  Becky, Amy and Kirstine all went swimming in the sea and had a fabulous time.

Today everyone wanted to go back to the beach as it was going to be a warm sunny day.  When we arrived some of us went in the cafe for a drink while others set up or camp on the beach.  The sun shone all day it was lovely.  Amy got herself a body board to swim with in the sea.  Carolyn, Sam, Becky and Ruth all paddled in the sea.  Leslie chose to walk up and down the pier and have tea on the pier.  We had a look around the shops and had a wonderful last day to our holiday.  We couldn't believe it when it was time to go home and start our packing.  After dinner several of us walked down to the pier to watch the fireworks.
