    Sandbanks and Studland Bay

    October 12, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    We drive to Swanage and take the bus and then chain ferry to Sandbanks, a small peninsula on the end of a spit crossing the mouth of Poole Harbour: it is famed for being one of the most expensive places in the world for real estate. We walk on the beach and circle back via Panorama Avenue - Rick Stein's restaurant is on the junction next to Caff (their spelling) and an estate agent.

    We take the chain ferry back, about a 5 minute journey, and enjoy a view of Bournemouth in the distance. We start at the beginning of the South West Coast Path - of which the Jurassic Coast Walk forms part - and enjoy walking on the beach of Studland Bay; this section is extremely popular with dog walkers and people of a certain age!

    We reach Redend Point and have an excellent view of thecOld Harry Rocks. We also see the Dragon's Teeth - apparently Studland Bay was considered an invasion point during WWII and these are anti -tank fortifications. We also go into Fort Henry, an observation bunker overlooking the bay, on the route to Handfast Point and the Old Harry Rocks.

    Dorset Day Trip

    May 19, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Today was an early start as I was off to visit Amy and Spencer in Dorset, a seaside resort on the Southern Coast if England. It’s a 2 hour journey by coach from Victoria Coach Station. The country side is so green and lush. I arrived at Ringwood, a pretty little market village in Hampshire situated about 15mins from Amy’s home which is titled “Woodside” its in the county of Wigbeth, Horton.
    After a guided tour of Amy’s home and seeing all the current building works we were of to Poole Harbour which is a natural harbour on the coast for lunch at Rick Steins seafood restaurant in a town called Sandbanks. It was a lovely day all be it the little rain that fell late in the afternoon.

    A 22km bike to the beautiful Studland Bay

    The beaches of the Studland peninsula stretch from the boundary of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at Old Harry Rocks north to Shell Bay, where a chain ferry provides a link to Poole and Bournemouth.

    South Beach is the smallest and popular with locals. Middle Beach is sheltered by low cliffs, while Knoll Beach, backed by a wilderness of dunes, has wide open spaces and includes a 1km designated naturist area.
