The southwest of England

Yesterday we went for a drive into the New Forest for lunch, enjoying the sight of the wild ponies that wander the fields and woods there.

We set off for Wareham this morning and had a serene hour kayaking the river there.

This was followed by coffee with the Kapers who joined my sister and Anna at the Coffee Saloon.

Then we walked around purchasing lunch and viewing an artisan’s shop and H and I were dazzled by a funeral procession comprised of sleek black horses and glass hearse carriage.

From there we went to visit Thomas Hardy’s cottage and surrounding woods where we picnicked and strolled the bluebells and blossoms – bliss!

Tomorrow: Gatwick

    Lovely pictures… but what is it with you and getting in the way of funerals? (e.g. you blocked a funeral while you ate your lunch on the church steps — deny it not). Did you really stop a hearse for a picture?
