Here are a few photos from our
walk from Beaulieu to Buckler's Hard and back on the last day of our New
Tonka Toy Land Rover.
Very cool. I wonder how often it goes four wheel driving?
Still ... it bought back memories of all the great camping weekends we had
in our Land Rover.
It's funny but the symbol of
Beaulieu is the same symbol used for the Santiago de Chile Metro.
Symbol at El Golf on Line One
Symbol near Escuela Militar -
also on Line One. I used to think the symbol used to look vaguely
demonic when lit up at night.
Nice little cottage overlooking
The Beaulieu river.
You wonder why the pet shop is
a bit hidden.
Pretty field at the start of the walk.
Treatment plant ... the things
I like taking pictures of!
Going off this part of the
trail is ill advised.
So is this bit.
And this ....
Lovely view of marshland from a
bird watcher's hut. It was just nice watching the sound of the wind
rushing through the reeds. Saw a few birds as well ... although I
had the quiet suspicion that they knew we were there.
Here's a few videos I took of the wind blowing through the reeds.
Wind over the lake.
Wind through the reeds
There was a magnificent marina
with lots of great boats. While it was a restricted area, I asked
the marina supervisor nicely and he let us walk around and take photos.
Some old patrol boat.
Lovely house leading into the
Main street of Buckler's Hard.
Presumably, this is the former slipway where ships for the war against the
French were built - far away from prying eyes of the enemy.
It's also a nice play for a
picnic and to drink cider while lapping up the sunshine and all the boats.
The two of us.
Long boat outside the Maritime
Museum. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to go in.
Strange picture of some buoys
and a chair at the back of the marina on the way back to Beaulieu.
The dream house we saw on the
way back. It even had it's own jetty.
