spring walks

Thursday, 8 May 2014

our friend jack came down to visit for a few days a couple of weeks ago. we made the most of the sunshine and went down the road for a walk around hengistbury head. i never actually went down to the beach huts over warren hill so we stretched our legs along the narrow strip of sand, enjoyed the views and rediscovered the warm feeling of sun caressing our faces.

chloe joined us on our excursion, we stopped for ice cream and caught up with what we missed of each others' lives this year. everyone had been busy in different ways  dissertation, placement year or in my case taking some time off to focus on what matters. so it was lovely to be able to look back and see how far we've come, what we've overcome and what lays ahead  jack is looking forward to graduating, whilst chloe will carry onto a master's and jack (our mate) will be finishing his degree.

going for walks is one of our favourite outings especially when our budget is running low and the sun is encouraging us to take nature in. it allows us to spend some time together, laugh, talk and share moments away from life's distractions.

some of our favourite spots around bournemouth are:

a. hengistbury head   perfect to take your dog for a walk or collect shells. it has beautiful views over christchurch and bournemouth and is easy to access, with good car park facilities, as well as has two cafes at each ends of the walk.

b. kingston lacy  owned by the national trust, it is perfect for families to wander. the country mansion has an impressive art collection and extensive gardens and parkland to explore, don't miss out on the kitchen garden  my all-time favourite — which includes little pigs, chicken, ducks and geese as well as communal allotments.

c. kimmeridge bay  jack's favourite surf spot around bournemouth. a little further than the other two, it has stunning views of the jurassic coast. the bay is a designated marine nature reserve and its geology is world-renowned. it is a great place for fossil hunting.

where do you like to walk, anywhere in dorset jack and me should explore?
