So we are looking to do days out that we probably wouldn't normally do, visiting local museums, etc. Alex and I moved to Hampshire many years ago and visited these museums on occasions, and sometimes when family visited us, and we took Imogen to some when she was smaller, so we're revisiting some of them again now she is a little older.
On of it's major displays is of the Titanic, with models and lots of memorabilia from it, a film is played on a loop of the building of the ship, the launch, the news of the disaster, the families waiting back home and memories of those affected by it.
Imogen had a lovely day, and was eager to tell Daddy the news later about the ship that was going to New York but it never got there because it sank. I guess it was news to her that day, even if it did happen 98 years ago!
We walked around the town for a while after, and had lunch and Imogen was very interested in the castle walls, and gateways, she is very interested in castles at the moment so I am looking around to other ones we can visit that will fulfil what she wants to see. We've visited some in the past, so will be looking at some others too.
Other local days out posts to follow throughout August.
