Mon 18 – Wed 20 July. Left my brothers at Havant nr. Portsmouth. In scorching sun, followed the coast through Gosport, Lee-on-the-Solent, Southampton docks, Hythe, Lymington and Milford-on-Sea which were all pretty though very busy as it’s now high season and schools finished for summer.
Then onwards into Dorset through Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole. This was not a nice experience, 100s of big and busy roundabouts to negotiate with impatient drivers. Couldn’t park so kept going. Settled for the night in a campsite slightly inland nr. Wareham.
On Tuesday went round the Isle of Purbeck, visiting Corfe Castle, Studland Bay and Swanage. Tuesday night we camped in a field on a lovely farm Zambuka House at Osmington nr. Weymouth with spectacular sea views from the van.
