As we posted a few days ago we spent a few days staying in a hotel on Poole Quay whilst visiting the Southampton Boat show. You can see our video by clicking on our previous blog post or by watching here
The day after the boat show we visited the lovely town of Wareham, a place we have spent many holidays when our kids were younger. We used to visit a couple of times a year taking our touring caravan along with our inflatable dinghy and outboard engine. We spent many an evening motoring up and down the River frome, the kids loved it.
We then decided to go for a drive to the beach, we stumbled across the naturist section, so seeing as it was a nice day, we decided, if you can’t beat them join them 🙂
After a couple of hours though the cloud came over and caused the temperature to drop, so we made our way back to the car, had a drive over the chain ferry and went back to the hotel. We spent a couple of hours sat on the quayside watching the world go by with a nice bottle of wine.
We finished the weekend off by visiting Wareham Quay again on the Sunday morning and treated ourselves to a lovely Full English breakfast before it was time to start the long drive home.
After a 4 hour drive along with a 40 minute delay due to an accident on the motorway, we arrived home safe and well.
It was a brilliant long weekend and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We are now looking forward to our Atlantic trip starting this Sunday. Check back here to find out how we got on.
