What better to do on an Easter Monday, but a family outing to the seaside? We set off to Studland Beach by way of the chain ferry in Poole. From there we went to Corfe, and its castle with walls that alarmingly seemed to be sliding down the hill. We had lunch in the National Trust tea rooms, just outside the castle walls in the village, and then we went to Swanage. Ahh, the seaside; the proper, traditional seaside town – I love it! The pier has recently been reopened, and to help pay of it you can have brass plaques place on the decking. Most of them are in memory of someone, but some are requests to marry, or random birthday/Christmas wishes. We decided that Grannie should have one – she loved the family caravan holidays in Swanage – and going down to the beach to get a daily breath of sea air.
