Friendly faces from home and a day out in Swanage

We enjoyed an busy three day visit with Christine and Mike who were passing through from Iceland to Ireland.
We celebrated Mike’s birthday, toured¬†¬†Bournemouth and took a day trip to Swanage.¬† From Swanage we took a steam train to Norden past the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle.
The site is believed to have been occupied since 6000 BC and the murder of Edward the Martyr took place at the castle in 978.
If you know Mike, be sure to ask him about the historical evolution of the sheep….a man who knows his stuff!
Photo was taken by a young man sitting across from us on the train. He was from Vernon.
