PS Nice photos.....
Good bit of coast that and the bit around to Lulworth, when they aren't firing at you from the ranges!
Mike I think in Cowes it is a bit cheaper still. Anyway diesel is the way to go.
By the way Wiesia and I have never seen Old Harry so a cruise is on the make. How about it?

Richard thanks for bringing Old Harry to our attention

Sounds good, Andre. It's one of those sights that, in the past, we have just whizzed by further off shore so it was good to get a closer look.

Regarding a cruise, Poole is easy for mooring and finding lunch - plenty of pubs and cafes a minute's walk from Dolphin Marina. Richard's going to have to work some weekends, unfortunately, but if we can make it, we'll be there.

P.S. Richard still hasn't found the receipt yet!!! Hope Wiesia and you are now fully mended!!

No we did not cos we were way out from the shore and who was sightseeing anyway in that weather

and coming back we just head straight for the Needles

so this will have to be a special cruise "sightseeing" with a picnic basket and a nice bottle of Chillian red

Suits me.... Maybe we could do a midweek trip. I know Wiesia is having trouble with August but they stop shooting that month so if she can get a day it would be a good time for and in-shore trip to Weymouth via Lulworth Cove etc.

How about you Richard?
