Between trawling through record shops in search of vinyl I used to have as a teenager, and work, I have found some time for a bit of wandering. I had last week off work and the weather was simply wonderful. We didn't go away anywhere but instead undertook a number of day trips, of which this trip to Lymington was one.
To make a change from our usual walk around the salt marshes to the west of Lymington, we headed off to the east to see what was around the corner, other than the Isle of Wight ferry.

Over the past few years we have only ever seen the Isle of Wight from this distance. It's on the list but we just need to find the time.

I'm not normally one for any sort of horse, pony or donkey, but in this case following the cost path it was unavoidable and we had to walk through them. Feeling brave, afterwards, I stopped to take a quick photo. Not sure why I was worried, the ponies couldn't have cared less.

I'm not remotely nautical, but there is something about the sight of a shipyard that attracts me.
