Blue Anchor Bay June 1996
We went on holiday to Blue anchor Bay and stayed in a static caravan. A steam train ran right by where we were and I got a lovely photo of Jamie, Vicki, Gordon and Rob waving to the driver. We had a day trip to Butlins, one to Dunster Castle and another to Cleve Abbey. I remember how happy I was to have my children around me during what would have been Lesley’s 36th birthday.

Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall May 1998
The five of us stayed in a holiday chalet (Trewince Holiday Lodges) on the Roseland Peninsula. We met up with the Grays and the Horswells for a picnic. We went to Portscatho Beach and Portcurnick Beach to explore. We also visited St Mawes Castle and then drove to Falmouth to visit Pendennis Castle.
