The most beautiful place in the world?

250614pooleharbour

Yesterday, my cousin came down just for the day. I picked her up at Poole station, we walked down to the Old Town, ate fish and chips at a pub on the Quay, then had a tourist-y boat trip around the islands in Poole harbour. It was so beautiful.

The castle on Brownsea Island, where we stopped to pick up more passengers.

Purbeck from the boat.

I got M back to the station just in time for her train. This morning I’m suffering from sunburn. You’d think I’d know better at my age!

That sounds brilliant - I'm glad the weather cooperated!
Fab weather but very breezy on the water!
All change this afternoon, apparently, so we timed the visit right.

!Poole harbour

It looks almost as pretty as Torbay, tee-hee! I would say that, wouldn't I, living here?

Re: !Poole harbour

Hee! Let's say we both live in or near beautiful places. Poole does have the second largest natural harbour in the world, of course ...
I love Poole,too. :-)
Glad you had a lovely time and weather to match!

Thanks! We were very lucky as it rained the next day.
How lovely and what a super way to spend a day. It all looks very nice indeed! Wasn't the weather gorgeous?
Lovely weather, although windy, and so much worse the next day! I'm waiting for it to rain ATM, it's so dark.
How gorgeous!
It was! Love that icon.
