We enjoyed our journey through some beautiful countryside. Once at Butlins we unpacked and had dinner in “The Sun & Moon” before enjoying the Redcoats with their entertainment and we danced into the night.
After a hearty breakfast we went ten pin bowling and enjoyed the competition. We then lunched and went for a wander around the site to acquaint ourselves with all the wonders of Butlins. Killer pool was our next event and then it was time to get ready for dinner and off to the panto, where we booed & hissed along with everyone else. Afterwards we went to the ballroom where we saw a “Rolling Stones” tribute band and danced both to them and some disco music. We were the last to leave.
We awoke to a beautiful day and decided to drive to Porlock, through the wonderful countryside. We saw lambs frolicking in the fields. Once at Porlock, those that were brave enough paddled in the sea. It was then off to Lynmouth to do a little shopping for gifts and had fish and chips for lunch. Next was a ride in the cliff railway to Linton. Travelling back, we stopped for an ice cream while looking over the bay. In the evening we watched tributes to both Tina Turner and Tom Jones and then more dancing well into the night.
The next day we took the land train around Minehead front and harbour areas. We wandered around the town and bought a few more gifts. In the afternoon we went into the fairground and had great fun on the rides and stalls. Again, we had a game of killer pool and then refreshed for dinner in a nice country pub in Dunster. It was an excellent meal. Back at Butlins we watched a tribute to the Jacksons and then we went to Reds to see tributes to the Bee Gees. More dancing and singing along the way.
Our last day and we journeyed home. Stopping for a good lunch at a nice country pub we all agreed it had been a fabulous week.
Thanks to all for making it a splendid time.
