We visited Dorset for a few days and enjoyed lovely sunny weather.  We like steam trains so journeyed from Corfe Castle to Swanage and back.  We were lucky enough to sit in the observation car and on the way back were close up and personal with the steam engine.  The lovely chuff chuff noise reminded us of a panting dog!

We used the chain link ferry between Poole and Studland to visit some old haunts including waving "hello" to The Old Malthouse School (now closed) where my brother went to school.

The sea was a lovely blue and this view is of Chapman's Pool.
