An unexpected visitor

During our recent weekend in Bournemouth, UK, we had an early morning walk through the park in the centre of Bournemouth. Its a favourite place with families for picnics. There used to be a tethered balloon ride, but while the mooring base was still there, there was no evidence of the balloon – maybe it’s in storage for the winter.

As we walked along we noticed the park has a lot of grey squirrels and they are very tame. Have a look at this fellow…

The park is an unexpected find right in the centre of Bournemouth.. worth a look if you visit.

We were very lucky with the weather – we were there 4 days and had bright sunshine every day. Although it was cool(well it was late October), the crowds were out.

The seascapes were fabulous…

All in all a great weekend, thanks for reading.



Surfs Up

Surfs Up

Ok well maybe not that apparent. I took this on a late summers afternoon from Bournemouth Pier. As you can tell from the picture, the sun was very strong and the surfers were much in evidence. We found a perfect place (called the Aruba Bar) on the pier from which to sit and watch the surfers enjoy…. lazy days!
