photoblog image Boat Friday

Boat Friday

..and Bus Friday. A shot from early February. A favourite walk is to go from Sandbanks, along the beach at Studland, on passed Old Harry, on to Ballard Down and then into Corfe. It's around 11 miles and far too far to walk back.. so I get the bus! The bus from Swanage back to Sandbanks is open top even in winter. There's a small enclosed area at the front but that's for the namby-pambies.. real men sit outside! Goodness, it was cold! I had hat, gloves, scarf, coat done up right to the neck and I was still freezing. Being stoic, though, I saw it through to the end. I was glad back to the car after, though, and to turn the heater right up. 

 

Here, the bus is on the Sandbanks ferry; warmth is just about four or five minutes away.

I was going to make an observant comment on your state of mind but then thought better of it. Probably it's best for all concerned if you continue to consider yourself sane..
