18th Nov 12 - Christchurch
Popped down to The Beach House on
Saturday afternoon. Sunday was the most wondrous day. Bright blue skies.
As the Sandbanks ferry is closed for 5 weeks we went east to Christchurch for a most marvelous 7 miler involving TWO ferries, hot chocolates and mussels and chips for lunch!
My cup runneth over!
|Parked by the old Priory in the centre of Christchurch|
|Walked along the riverbank|
|Then across and along the marshland|
|Lobster pots and the fresh fish stall at Mudeford|
|At Mudeford, we took Ferry#1|
|Across the very narrow entrance to Christchurch harbour|
|Leaving the ferry, it was hot chocolates at the Beach House cafe|
|We walked back along the waterside looking back at the most expensive beach huts in the world!|
|The little train from Hengistbury Head was doing a roaring trade on such a lovely day when the world and their dogs seemed to be out walking!|
|Then it was Ferry#2 to take us across the river again|
|Mussels and chips at The Boat House|
|Finally, for the record, I removed all the geraniums from our patios and replaced them with yellow pansies and pink tulips. watch this space next spring!|
