We all arrived safely at the hotel and got settled in our rooms.  We had a lovely evening meal at the hotel and sat in the bar area chatting and getting to know each other over a few drinks before having an early night as everyone was so tired after all the travelling.
Tuesday 17th July

We all enjoyed a full English breakfast this morning and went for a walk along the parade.  We visited Merrivale Model Village and enjoyed doing a quiz as we walked round looking at everything.  We had lunch and Sonia had her sandwich eaten by a seagull!  We then played crazy golf and Keith won - he was very pleased.  We sat on the pier and had ice creams before returning to the hotel where we had dinner.  In the evening we went to a pub called The Prince Edward which had live music so everyone enjoyed a dance.

Another full English to start the day!  This morning we went to Thrigby Hall and saw lots of different animals.  We got really close to some tigers and leopards!  We had pasties and ice cream and a lovely walk around the lake there.  We then went back to the hotel for a walk on the beach where Adam went for a swim but everyone else enjoyed a paddle.  After dinner we all wanted to go back to the pub for live music and more dancing.
