Butlins, Fun & Dancing
We also had the best time at the fun fair where we jumped straight onto the Carousel ride. Some then braved the thrilling Waltzer, before we flew high into the sky on the Umbrella ride which gave us great views over Butlins.
Mitchell, Jacob and Dan went on the go carts with the rest of the group cheering from the side. It was a great race with them managing to overtake each other leaving it a close finish.
We were spoilt for choice with the choice of shows. The Mr Men characters entertained us with their very lively and jolly show and the fabulous performance of Sleeping Beauty with some incredible singing and of course lots of comedy from the Pantomime Dame; it made for a perfect afternoon.
Off to Skegness Natureland Seal Sanctuary, where we visited the young seal pups who had been rescued and nursed back to health before being released back into the wild. We saw penguins, alpacas and fed the friendly but very greedy goats who couldn't resist trying to nibble at our coats and bags!
The Lincolnshire Aviation museum was fascinating. On arrival we were thrilled to witness the Avro Lancaster NX611 'Just Jane' taxi across the tarmac and put into the hanger. We walked around and enjoyed seeing the many old military vehicles and uniforms. Jacob climbed up to sit in the cockpit of a Canberra aircraft and experience what it was like for the pilot in such cramped conditions.
The evening entertainment blew us away every night. The 60’s music got us rocking and a rolling to the tribute act The Jersey Boys. We sung our hearts out to the popular girl group, Little Mix and we were 'dancing queens' with the iconic band ABBA.
A fun game of bowling was had with some great high scores and a few strikes. The overall winner was Jacob with an amazing score of 152. A big to him and the rest of the group for a superb game.
