Nostalgia

July 30, 2009

Liz and I spent a nostalgic (for me – not for her!) afternoon at Mudeford Beach in Dorset when we were on holiday. My family used to stay in a holiday camp near there when we went on our summer holidays. We would rent a beachhut in Mudeford and spent a lot of time down there…anyway here are some pics I took when we were there. As usual here is a slideshow with a few extra pictures….

Commoners

July 24, 2009

Liz and I visited the New Forest recently. My family and I used to go there when we were kids and it was exactly as I remembered it.

It is kind a unique place (at least in the UK). The landscape is shaped by the fact that commoners are allowed to let Horses, Donkeys and Cattle graze there and roam freely. Horses have the right of way on the roads so its not unusual for them to be standing in the middle of the road.

Here are the same pictures as a slideshow… they look better big and also I will add more when I finally get round to more scanning.
