The Rest of Our Adventure in the New Forest

December 26th-Boxing Day

On Boxing Day we waved a sad goodbye to my partner, as he had to head home.

As the weather was still rainy, me and my family had a quieter day.

We popped into the on-site shop, and took my brother to the amuesment arcades, before me and my mum went for a forest walk.

After an hour’s stroll, we headed back to our lodge.

Me and my family watched some TV, played with my brother and his new toys, before eating dinner.

I had Quorn ‘chicken’ with vegetables and potatoes.

Followed by chocolate pudding topped with custard and cream for dessert. Delicious.

Feeling full, we spent the rest of the evening watching movies and playing games.

After a chilled out Christmas, we was set for another relaxing day!

Me and my mum had booked ourselves in for some beauty treatments at the lovely on-site spa.

I had a facial and a massage, as well as a gel manicure and pedicure, all of which was amazing.

After a blissful few hours of pampering, I went for a walk near our lodge.

Once I got back from my walk, I had a lovely hot bath using one of Lush’s Christmas bath bombs.

Ate a yummy mushroom pizza for my dinner.

On our last day in the New Forest, we jumped in the car and drove to the seaside town of Bournemouth for a day out.

Despite the cold weather, the sky was clear, sunny and beautiful.

Bournemouth Beach.

Next to the beach is the Oceanarium, which is where we headed.

We saw fish.

Cheeky otters.

And playful penguins.

Before watching the green sea turtles being fed.

And getting some photos up close with them.

After a fun day out, we took another walk along the beach.

Before driving back to our lodge.

Later in the evening, we ate at one of the on-site restaurants.

I had a halloumi and vegetable burger with fries.

Followed by a warm chocolate brownie with ice cream.

After dinner, we headed back to the lodge to pack up our things and tidy up, sad to be heading home the next morning.

  1. What an amazing trip and the perfect way to spend your holiday! The spa sounded heavenly! And that sunset I love me a gorgeous sunset! Ahhh I LOVE that you went to the beach during the Winter. People always think I am crazy but I love the beach in the winter it is so quiet and peaceful. The aquarium looked incredible! My nephew would freak out seeing all those turtles (they are his favorite) Seriously what a greta ending to your trip! ❤
