Hi readers, it’s Emily, Kerry and William here talking about what we’ve been up to this summer, at least until the start of August.
We actually wrote these two articles a few weeks ago, but we have had so many other things to share with you since then!
So, I Emily will start by telling you about my summer journey so far where I’ve been enjoying many outings out and about in Dorset.
First I want to tell you about my visit to Minterne Gardens, a huge open garden in North Dorset with lakes and waterfalls, lovely and peaceful, and so big you probably won’t bump into anyone! Mum and I took the dogs, and highly recommend seeing the dragon and fairy trail if it’s still on, as it was amazing. The staff are so friendly too, and served us tasty cake with a drink in their cafe!
I also loved seeing the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Dorset Museum. It’s touring the country and currently in Dorchester. It’s a world exhibition and the photos are amazing. Many tell stories, some are sad, others are interesting and beautiful. The photos taken by children were incredible. Do go if you can, the rest of the museum is brilliant too!
Mum and I also had a lovely sunny Sunday by the seaside in Swanage, taking the dogs again. We stopped for a delicious breakfast in what looked like a shack, then wandered around the beach and shops, before an essential ice cream and walking to Durlston Country Park, which was fabulous.
Gosh, we are already out of room, so we will write more next week, and I also want to tell you about my birthday party! Check in then and also find out about what William has been up to.
