MILFORD ON SEA, HAMPSHIRE

March started with a bluster, with icy winds on the coast. Take a walk along the sea front at Milford on Sea. These pictures were all taken over a short period of time with an ever changing sky to vary the views of the Isle of Wight.

SOUTHBOURNE AND WICK

SOLENT AND STOUR

TAKE A WALK ALONG THE BEACH AND OVER FIELDS TO

THE RIVER STOUR

 

Walk down to the beach at Southbourne Crossroads, if you turn right you can walk to Boscombe and Bournemouth, if you turn left you see the Isle of Wight. Walk past the Bistro on the Beach and you are soon at the end of the promenade. Carry on along the beach, the cliffs are low here, walk up and across the fields. At the Hiker Cafe we always think we are going to stop for coffee, but we never do as there is always a long queue if the weather is nice ( not actually pouring with rain ) at the weekend and dogs and children have been brought out for exercise. From here you can climb up to the top of Hengistbury Head and look down over Christchurch Harbour, but this time we  cross the fields and  reed beds and end up by the River Stour at Wick.  As the Wick Ferry was running we took a £1 trip across the River Stour to Christchurch.
