Enid Blyton Part II

Before we headed off last week to do the second part of Enid Blyton trail we needed some refreshments. Refreshments of the old fashioned sugary variety. We were in Corfe Castle to catch a train and popped into the old fashioned sweet shop.
What a choice!
Bonbons proved popular.
Next stop the Ginger Pop shop, dedicated to Enid Blyton. It even had a Wishing Chair outside in case you were in need of some magic.
We carefully perused the windows for the next clue.
Then off to the little station and this is where I probably need to explain I am definitely not a trainspotter. I just got a bit carried away with photographing all the lovely old fashioned 'stuff'.
However that is not to say that I did not love that little station.
The colours.
The cute neat and tidiness of it all.
The view to the castle beyond.
Then it arrived. Our transport for the day!
A good old steam train.
We were riding the Swanage Railway in search of our next clue.
Destination sunny Swanage.

More Fortes icecreams to be enjoyed.
Little Jammer had her first taste of Punch and Judy
and shrieked with surprise and laughter.
Sorry about the finger - bad photographer!
Still 2 clues to go...

Introducing my guest bloggers!

Today's post is written by the jammers who have been dying to get on here. So I'm handing over to them, in all their own words...

As our mum was at a Bridport Vintage Fair last weekend we had a special treat for our Dad. We took him to Corfe Castle that was blown up hundreds of years ago!

As well as walking around there was a treasure hunt where you had to find sheilds with questions on.  However, we did have to go around again as we missed the first one!
One of us decided to dress up as knight.
Our Dad sent this photo to our mum as she was at the Bridport Vintage Fair.
We rolled down this massive hill but unfortunately we couldn't get our dad to roll down it!
When we got to the top of the castle there was an amazing view of the climb up to the top and the village of Corfe Castle.
Also, we could see the Steam Train from the top of the hill.
Next, our Dad decided I had been very naughty and put me the stocks!
Then my sister had been naughty; it was her turn in the stocks!
After that, we  peered through an arch window!
Once we had climbed all the way back down,we found this painting that you could put your faces in the holes and make you look like a soldier! My sister is looking really happy because at that moment she thought that we were having a pub lunch!
To end the lovely outing we went to a Sweet Shop, that was full of sugary treats!
