Deserted ….

We decided to take our dog to one of our favourite dog-walking places on the south coast of England – Hayling Island. From the end of May to the beginning of September, dog walkers are restricted to an area away from the main beach. Anyway, we went yesterday (we had originally planned to go today (Monday) as its the last public holiday before Christmas(sorry) but the weather forecast wasnt great for today and as I type.. its pouring down with rain.

Anyway, we decided to go down to avoid the traffic and arrived around 10:45am to this… an almost deserted beach.

Not a person in sight!

There were people around.. but only Dog Walkers.. the hordes of day visitors hadnt yet arrived….  (the pic below could be an entry for Silhouettes?)..

Enjoying the view!

One of the things I like about this beach is that you get a good view across to the Isle of Wight..

and not forgetting the skyscape – which yesterday was just awesome….
