Up at 8.00
Breakfast as per usual was very yummy indeedy
After breakfast we went to the fairground that is situated within the Butlins site. It is fairly small and has about 6 /7 rides, a simulator (or 'stimulator' as Teen called it!!!!), dodgems and a go kart track plus some bouncy things.
Most of the rides are free and run by happy Butlins people... I managed the carousel, the Rockin Tub and the 'stimulator'... which had me crying laughing
love this picture of the Teens having huge belly laughs on a kiddy ride :-D
As it was the last afternoon we decided to do what fav things we wanted to do... the Teens chose the indoor pool and I chose the beach.
I walked for 3 hours along the shoreline...camera in hand, shoes off .. feet feeling the sand and sea between my toes... bliss
There are more photos over at my flickr account do take a look ... loving the groynes...
In the way back to the apartment I went to visit Jackie the Resort Director to thank her for the lovely stay at the resort but unfortunately she was having a day off..... so thank you again we have had a ball :-)
When I got back to the apartment I found the Teens chilling in the lounge watching 'Twilight' which they had hired.......
In the evening we had yet another lovely meal and we went off to the Reds ... for the last time. The show was tremendous. It was called the 'The Big Red' where all the Red Coats performed songs from shows such as Hairspray and Moulin Rouge. Also dance routines emulating 'Diversity' who won Britain's Got Talent this year. The performance was polished and professional... in fact one zillion times better than the act before 'Off Limits' who when we walked in we thought it was a karaoke session going on .... (I have a short recording on my phone of them but I really couldn't inflict that on my readers)
As per usual I came back to the apartment whilst the Teens did their own stuff. As we all know the news about Michael Jackson broke.... but about 5 hours before he died one of my icons form the 70s also passed away .. Farrah Fawcett.
I had heard she was ill but I must confess I hadn't realised how ill she was. Being a 70s teen I was brought up on a diet of Charlie's Angels.. it was one of my 'must' watch programmes and Farrah was my favourite ... all that beautiful hair .. I so wanted to be her back then. Such a shame.
