Another busy day but we could tell the children were tired as it took longer to get them out of bed this morning. Mr McKell and Mr Mills had to drag some of the children out of their pits and into the bathrooms.
Today was a visit to Black Gang Chine amusement park! Here the children rode the ‘Cliffhanger’ rollercoaster, rode the ‘Waterblaster’, the spinning barrels and walked through Area 5 – full of moving dinosaurs, which some even believed may be real life! The children enjoyed the many different themed play areas, including the Wild West where some were locked up in a prison cell.
Animals were fed and stroked, and children enjoyed various animal shows around Seaview Wildlife Centre. It was evident that yesterday's antics on site are beginning to take their toll but the sights of hundreds of ducks soon raised the children's spirits as they pounced on every duck to feed it.
We headed back to our hotel, where we began to pack, ready for our departure tomorrow. It's so weird. Everything fitted into our suitcases when packed last weekend to come, but now, for some reason, nothing seems to fit in at all!!! After attempting to pack, we cleaned our rooms, checked our draws, wardrobes and bathrooms, to make sure that we weren't going to leave anything behind, ate the most wonderful tea, got dressed for the beach and headed down for one final swim in the sea.
