Sandbanks, Dorset

It is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday and as I am so keen to be more spontaneous ( I’m approaching Midlife Crisis, I think ) I decide I have to just wake up, look at the weather, plus weather forecast ( as I live in England after all, we have 4 seasons in a day )…

Sandbanks

This is the best beach in the South, and maybe even in the whole of England. On a hot sunny day, I decided to drive to Sandbanks in Dorset, about 135 miles away. Yes you read that right, a never ending 135 miles it was that day. I let the heat get to my head,…

Shoeburyness

Stonehenge
