Gosport and Southsea 29th June 2018

Another AirBnB trip staying in Southsea. We spend most of a day in Gosport and then the second day on the beach in Southsea, with lots of time in the sea. Jack collected some litter from the beach and was given a free got chocolate by the beach cafe.

We visited the natural history museum and model village in Southsea too.

We have had a quiet couple of weeks, mostly just taking it easy at home and thinking about work and subjects to study. Jack has been going to Pokemon club each week and we have had some good Times Pokemon hunting and managed to claim a few gyms too.

On Monday we went down to Brighton to the Lego shop and for a day on the pier. They have an all day ride pass for £9 which is good value considering the rides are normally £2 each. Jack loves the bouncy castle and inflatable slide but he had a few goes on the others too. Rowan had his first ride on the carousel and enjoyed watching the sea gulls as always.

Jack is interested in starting a Spongebob project so I am going to do some planning for that. Thinking we can do some media studies, video making or stop motion, marine biology, voice acting, writing scripts, arts, making costumes maybe as well as facts and some episode or film reports. I have been looking at the Earthschooling curriculum and think some of the blocks would be good for us too.

Had another good day on Brighton beach with friends and no disagreements or problems, even with ten children! Jack didn’t want to go in the sea but was happy playing with and collecting stones. I had hoped to find a good sized rock to use as a door stop and one of the children found a chunk of flint a little bigger than my hand, that is now doing the job perfectly. Among all the stones I found a tiny holey stone and brought that home as well. I’ve loved them since I was a child so try to keep an eye out for them. This one I now have on a piece of cord as a necklace 🙂

Had a lovely day in Brighton today. Spent a few hours on the beach and in the sea and then headed to the pier for some Pokémon hunting and rides. Saw and caught a few really good Pokémon including Haunter and Aerodacyl and Ponyta and of course brought home some rocks for Jack’s collection!
