Weston Super Mare holiday
Wow what a weekend we had! A group of us went to Pontins in Western Super Mare for a 50's & 60's themed weekend. Some traveled in the minibus and some by train but we all got there on the Friday evening in time for dinner, which was very good!
There was a lot to do, with activities going on all day including the leisure centre, swimming etc. and for the more energetic, a stroll along the sandy beach was just across the quiet road. Each evening there was an excellent bill of entertainment featuring bands from the 50’s and 60’s. Many of us dressed up and there was much dancing!
We went out on day trips for the two days we were there –on Saturday we went to a DIG For VICTORY exhibition, with stalls, memorabilia, vehicles, demonstrations and music (including a good old sing-along) from the Second World War. Many of the visitors and exhibitors dressed in uniforms or outfits from the period and it was really interesting.
On the Sunday we went to Tyntesfield, a Victorian National Trust country house and estate. As well as exploring this beautiful house with its ornate Gothic carvings, we walked amidst flower-filled terraces in this expansive estate amid the Somerset countryside. A very nice day out indeed.
On Monday the minibus took us on a leisurely drive home through the stunning Cheddar Gorge, having stopped in the village first to stock up on cheeses and cider!
