Holiday, well we all like that don’t we !
I won’t boor with lots of 'we went to' and 'we did' type of things, sufficient to say – Dorset, it did not rain and we went to a few nice places, Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Garden, Escote, Poole, Brownsea island.
Enough of that, here are a few of my images, I took quite a few, as is my want, I processed some of them to show them here on my Blog, some will feature in Photographic Club competitions, some will simply be enjoyed by us to remind us of our holiday, I hope that you enjoy them and are tempted to look at the locations and maybe if in the area pay them a visit
The view from the deck where the Hot Tub was - and very nice it was of an evening with a glass of wine or two
Has to be said the live in lodger was not liked by all our party
Poole, there was a Thai festival so we had to go to that - lots of displays and food and beer, and did I mention the thai food - ooh, it was good, there was also a ladyboy show, that was interesting!

|I could have been a contender !|
|The mermaid of Poole Harbour|
|Zen and the art of photography|
|Her nails were quite long !|
Escote has a captive Red Squirrel population and a few other displays, not keen on captive Birds of Prey, so no shots of them, the otters were cute but difficult to get good shots of really so not putting any up so its just the red Squirrel, but it is a nice place !

The insects were friendly, even the wasps waved and said hi !
|Hi, welcome to Dorset, hope you enjoy your stay|
Then Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Garden, if you get down to Dorset - I would recommnd this place it really is nice
|Now you see me|
|In the jungle, a rope bridge acrose the gorge|
|its not wood - its a big grass !|
A key place to go is Brownsea island for the indigenous Red Squirrel population, they also have a few other creatures and some seriously nice woodland and heathland
|Common Darter on Bell Heather|
|A young Sika Deer Doe|
|Pheasant, wanted feeding and was not taking no for an answer !|
|Wild Red Squirrel|
In all a good break, with some nice times and photo opportunities.
