So i am all packed up, after having to re-pack my case only once, and am ready to go. For those who asked for the details, I fly today at 2.50pm to Abu Dhabi where I have a 2 hour layover before the next flight to KL. I arrive in KL local time at approx 1.50pm on Wednesday. I am to be collected from the airport and then taken to the hotel where I will be staying until i find a lovely new ...
All packed and ready to go, we headed down to the train station. We caught the 9:45 from Wool to Poole, where we then picked up the coach to London Heathrow. I dropped Lucy off at the station entrance and left her looking like a bag lady for fifteen minutes while I dumped the car back at home then had a brisk walk back to the station. Our 3396 mile trip to the Big Apple has begun... South West trains did us proud ...
... woodlands, past lighthouses and on to Dancing Ledge where daredevil cliff climbers dare to jump! A casual lunch at Durlston Castle with a view back to old Harry Rocks...WOW!
A visit to Russell Cotes art gallery and museum on the cliff top near Bournemouth was also a lovely day. Amazing art exhibits!
And still the weather is still ...
... our day nicely. Newquay has a population of 22,000 but in summer it grows to 100,000 or more with the addition of holiday makers!!! It is widely regarded as the surf capital of the UK and has 9 long sandy accessible beaches.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
... in beautiful Wagait Beach. So it better not break down.
So the cost of the insurance did put a bit of a dampener on the purchase of the car but still a bit exciting. Walked back to his house, picked up the car - drove to the local electrical store and bought a cheap GPS for our journey. Made our way back to the flat to relax.
I cooked some more of our cheap steak, watched tv and went to bed.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHinton Firs Hotel Bournemouth
The accessible room was indeed accessible once someone helped get my wheelchair up the steep ramp to the front door. The hotel has the only lift I have seen over here with a sliding grate door which allows you to see the inside of the lift shaft on the way up. It was a bit expensive but it met our needs and the pool is very nice.
