Sun, shopping and sea urchins! Holiday snaps (2)!

Part two of my enormous album of holiday snaps... I'm sure you can barely contain your excitement. By the way, I did grab a moment to check my giveaway on Friday using Dan's smartphone whilst we were at KFC, so even on my romantic break I was keeping an eye on you guys... what can I say?

Day two began with a barefoot hike to the shops in Alum Chine... those sandals I wore to Tesco's shredded my poor feet, so I bought some great go-go platform boots from a fancy dress shop that was selling off some of its ex-hire costumes. There was loads of Gothy stuff, including some gorgeous Laughing Vampire dresses, but most of it didn't fit me!

We visited two fancy-dress shops that morning, and one of the shop assistants remarked that it was nice to have 'such happy customers'. ^^

Then we caught a bus into Bournemouth to visit the Oceanarium.

Dan's thoughts on this picture: "Why is it that you look cute and I look like I have a fat neck?"

Om nom nom
Here are some of our pics from the Oceanarium... we do actually have hundreds of photos of assorted aquatic creatures, but I thought I'd best only post a handful. Or two.

Yes, I DO change my headwear a hundred times a day. I look very sleepy in a few of these pictures!

After our deep-sea adventure, Dan decided to go on a bungee ball on the seafront... it catapults you about a hundred feet into the air, and that's not an exaggeration. There was no way I was getting on that. Yes, I'm chicken...

After watching my bonkers boyfriend take to the skies, I decided to experience one of the more tame seaside attractions and had a caricature done:
After an amazing afternoon shopping, visiting the arcades, eating ice cream and visiting a delicious tapas restaurant for dinner, we returned to the hotel along a clifftop path. It was a long but very enjoyable walk.
