With glorious English weather arriving over the last few days, yesterday seemed like a good time to get out in the sunshine and make the most of the wonderful sights of the Dorset coast. Those of us who live in the UK know all too well, that it pays to make hay while the sun shines.
Starting at the top of Branksome Chine we made our way through the amazing woodland that surrounds the stream as it makes its way slowly down to the ever popular Branksome beach. Not only does the walk through the Chine do you good, but it also saves trying to find a parking space down by the sea.
Being surrounded by fresh leaves and shoots, along with the sounds and smells that bombard the senses, leave you stunned by how wonderful nature is. The Chine winds gently down to the sea, so you hardly notice the slope, but the stream reminds you as it tumbles over a series of waterfalls, all very magical.
A beautiful day, beautiful weather, beautiful sights and wonderful experiences and all within thirty minutes of home. Some people might say I am lucky to live where I do, but actually it is a combination of the causes I have made in life. Isn’t karma grand?
