Wednesday 12th October 2016
Wednesday is my morning to go and visit my Dad, and today was no exception. It was a beautiful sunny day though, so I suggested to Dad that instead of our normal walk around Nea Meadows we go down to Highcliffe beach and then wander up Chewton Bunny. And in case you are wondering a ‘bunny’ is a small, steep valley made by a stream. In Bournemouth they are called Chines. As with many such valleys along the coast here that lead to the sea in past times it was used by smugglers.
Anyway, back to the beach. I parked in the clifftop carpark in Highcliffe and was delighted to see that at this time of year it is free. We then made our way to the beach.
This was the view looking west towards Sandbanks (which is the peninsula you can see).
With the tide going out there was a lovely section of sandy beach close to the bunny.
Jez was delighted to be down there, although Max was only interested in his cone.
While I played with Max Dad perched himself on the cliff.
And lastly, one finally shot of my very happy little staffy.
I’m afraid there aren’t any photos of the bunny. We walked up it a way and I washed the salt off Max in the stream. But it is tree lines and it was very dark in there so any photos wouldn’t really have come out.
A year ago today
We went for a walk on Upton Heath and met our friend Jasper the lurcher.
