Here we go.

We stayed in a two bed caravan, with Canvas Holidays. We stayed on a site called Duinrell, which had a great theme park attached, low key but with some really fantastic rides. The children loved the bumper boats but the were very slow and quite hard to control, poor Georgie she spent one go doing nothing but going round and round in circles!!
The chairoplane was great, a blast from the past, I can remember going on one of them at Butlins, in fact I remember going on one time and time again. Its a simple ride but really thrilling!
The park also had a great swimming centre with water slides, a lazy river and a wave pool. We were able to use the pool for two hours a day. After the first very busy session we learned that the best time to go was at 10am, that way we were able to do the rides without queuing!
Big M encouraged us all to join in with his mid life crisis, we decided that we would all chose a variety of names that we fancied and that we would try and live with that name for a day, at the end of the week we would decide which name was the best. (having voted each night on how the name had felt) I kicked off with Scarlett, Tom was Clyde, Carl was Rex and Beth was Roxy. Big M decided on Blue Thunder(?) It was really hard to stick to the new names, particularly Blue Thunder. I felt so sorry for Debbielou!!!
