It was also incredibly flat - there was no chop and hardly any swell (and I think most of that was caused by the motor boats whizzing back and forth just outside the swimming area). I could just float on my back and bob gently, looking up at the amazingly blue sky. All in all a lovely afternoon.
That night Evie came down on the train after work and we picked her up at Wareham station.
Thursday was the day we had all been looking forward to. Every time we go to Swanage we take the steam train to Corfe Castle.
We have been at the castle when it's foggy, raining and windy enough to blow us off the top, but this was perfect.
We had another cream tea while we were in Corfe
which was only slightly marred by the presence of fruit scones rather than plain.
I even managed to get David and Evie to be silly for me (Evie getting into the spirit of it and David very reluctantly).
We were very sad to pack up and leave on Friday. We had the best week there ever.
We did stop at Worth Matravers for one more cream tea before we left Dorset though.
