My plan to take a 60 mile drive to visit my younger son was scuppered today but in a good way. He surprised us by turning up at home on his day off. In my current train obsessed mood I suggested a roll along the south coast to Poole for a walk along the quay.
Poole Harbour is one of Europe's largest natural harbours and has some idyllic islands. Today the glinting water looked deceptively inviting.
The quay is lined with typically quaint English pubs. I don't go in them any more but I know where they are.
Fish and chips?
