The Fantastic 4s: four go mild in Dorset and four years of bloggery....

Pop Quiz: Which Beatles Aunt relocated here ?

After a week on the lounge-a-bout at home, we're down to Dorset for a few days, on the Purbeck peninsula above to be exact. Brownsea Island, Dancing ledge, Studland Bay are all on the to do list - but any holiday hints and tips (or pubs) are aways welcome..

While we're zipping around and about doing The Only Way is Wessex, this online musical allotment breaks the four year to celebrate I've laid on a couple of musical buffets..Summer Shakedown volumes 1 and 2..(3 and 4 are here and here).

So, I'll see you for more of the usual in a week and bit. Or thereabouts..

Summer Shakedown volume 1

Summer Shakedown volume 2

Tracklists for both are in the comms...

Well done on four fab years of blogging Mond; hope you, Mrs Mondo and the Minis all have a glorious time in Dorset. We are Somerset bound ourselves later this month - must stock up on Wurzels music.

And that'll be Aunt 'You'll never make a living out of playing the guitar' Mimi x

The Greyhound in Corfe Castle was doing great pizza's last time I was there which was er... 5 years ago I think!

You got to go to Corfe and catch the steam train into Swanage as well. Or... park at Corfe walk along the ridge - great views across Studland to Pool and beyond then get train back from Swanage

Love that area... Chapman's Pool is worth finding if you want to be totally isolated - it is sort of closed off due to landslips but you can park up and walk down to it...

Bluepool near Wareham is a good stop over for a tea and a walk about.

Mondo said...

Cheers all zider, zun and zeaside are on the menu for this week..

Yes, the Blue Pool *snaps fingers* - that's on the left-over list from the last visit. And Chapman's looks a treat..Ta G

Well done Davy it is Mrs Mimi.. I must post my pics of Lennon's Menlove Place

Four ludicrously entertaining and enlightening years. I love your blog Mondo as you're never judgmental about musical tastes.
