Staycation - Back of Beyond

Was up early to find that Reggie was on the bed between us. He seemed to have half the bed and we made do with the rest.

After breakfast the first stop was NT property Kingston Lacy. Some long walks later and we were feeling a bit knackered.

MG Midget?

Rather than come back to the site we headed for Corfe Castle. It was supposed to be 20 miles away. It seemed like twice that.

A mistake led us to park by the nearby station. We had to pay. The NT car park was free to members.

On the long walk to the castle we came across the Swanage Railway. A heritage steam railway. Reggie went mad as soon as the train whistled!

Photos to follow. I had given the Canon EOS an outing. But like a complete dunderhead I forgot the adapter to read the SD card on the phone!!


The visitor centre was closed and so we went back over the railway in time to see the train coming back.


Heavy traffic around Poole and Bournemouth was a bit of a bummer but we were back about 6pm.

A chance encounter with a Tesco with diesel at 176.9 had us on a short detour.

Back at Back of Beyond we adjourned to the bar for a drink. Cider Mojito for Claire and a pint of Piddle Cocky for me.


Tonight we eat in at home. Chilli we made and froze in the week.

Tomorrow. We head to Brixham.
