We showered (lovely!) and dressed and headed to breakfast. With a hot and cold buffet option plus table service for porridge, kippers and mackerel we all managed to fill our tummies. The sausages were particularly enjoyed and I will definitely be eating more of those as the week goes on. The coffee was fantastic and not instant which makes a huge difference to a coffee addict like me and generally breakfast was a success.
After breakfast we had a walk and found the Potters Panda bus which is a soft play area in a bus, the girls loved it as it had a slide, ball pit and lots of other things I couldn’t see as I was too big to go upstairs.
After arts and crafts it was time for lunch, the salad bar was exactly what we wanted and Alison and I enjoyed piling our plate full of salad, olives, beetroot and coleslaw.Elizabeth had plain pasta with a small amount of tomato sauce and I just had to try some of the kids chips as they looked too good and Adam stuck to the three course option with soup, steak and kidney pudding (which looked and tasted amazing) and a pudding. Both girls chose rice pudding for dessert whilst I opted for a toffee crunch which was amazing!
After Swimming we headed to the terrace bar where we were just in time for Hoy Bingo. Bingo cards cost £1 per person and was based on playing cards. After explaining the different suits to the girls we enjoyed playing three rounds. We didn’t win but we were very impressed with the girls number and card recognition, particularly Elizabeth who needed no help at all.
After bingo was afternoon races, we hadn’t planned to stay but it looked interesting and the girls wanted to join in. We watched four pre recorded dog races and bet £1 per dog on the outcome. With all four of us having a go each it cost me £16. Neither Gaming daddy of two or I won but the girls cleaned up and managed to win our money back, unfortunately it is in their pockets not mine!
The weather looks good for tomorrow so we are hoping to explore the grounds and the beach as well as see what other new things we can do. I will let you know how we get on!
