What have we been up to this month?

Ahoy, me hearties! Apple House care home have spotted pirates off the Dorset coastline!

Who needs the Caribbean for pirates when Poole harbour offers its own (more friendly and less rum-scented) version? D took to the decks when the Brownsea Island ferry was overrun with this fella in the photo! [No treasure or cutlasses were involved in the making of this day out].

Also in June…


Okay, so they were shy tigers. Or lions. Or perhaps not even cats at all, but there was a fantastic day out in the making at marvellous Longleat Safari Park where the animals might be hiding but fun was there for the taking.

Alos in June…

There’s nothing plain about a little plane spotting!

What else?

PHEW, May was also a busy month here at Apple House care home. Following a key worker meeting about attending the Theatre in Southampton to see Warhorse, it was swiftly booked.  Milosz (Deputy Manager) said: “What a great production it was! We all absolutely loved it, and the tasty meal out too. C has chosen to see Miss Saigon when it comes to Bournemouth.” – we can’t wait!

Also discussed in a key worker meeting was J’s desire to visit Swanage, to take a ride on a steam train, and here he is…It was a popular choice with all who decided to join in!

And last but not least….

Some people just want a free ride!

Longleat’s monkeys are far less shy than their lions, it seems.
