Frost and Ice
Frost, ice and brilliant sunshine, but no snow in this December walk from the town square that’s round, through the gardens and to the end of the pier.

NEEDLE’S EYE VIEW
A November walk in one of my ( many ) favourite Hampshire seaside places, completely different from our local beach and offering changing scenery as you stroll. Milford-on-Sea to Keyhaven and back appeals to the ubiquitous dog walkers, families, bird watchers and photographers. The Needle's Eye Cafe http://www.needleseyecafe.co.uk/ is a good spot for meals and drinks, there is a car park on the sea front so if the wind whips up, it pours with rain or you have brought great granny, you can sit in your car close to the waves.
Walk by the salt marshes and enjoy bird life and the very elegant Zwartbles sheep, which sadly are very popular to eat in local restaurants!
Hurst Spit is a popular walk for the energetic to reach Hurst Castle, which is the nearest point of the mainland to the Isle of Wight. There is also a little ferry in summer from Keyhaven.
In the Valentine’s Night storm of 2014 the old concrete beach huts were wrecked; the new ones were ready this year and look able to withstand storms, but the shingle still encroaches.
