Of course we took Rosie with us. She loved all the free running space she had and all the attention she received from little Izzy Toselli.
You can't go as far as Southport and not include a visit to Hastings! By all reports the thermal pool was fun but maybe 'tepid pool' would be a more accurate description. The kids had a blast. Thank goodness for dad's (eh Chels???) who have to do those things the mum's don't want to, like swimming with the kids on a Freezing, overcast, wet day!! Thanks Matt 'n' Dave.
