A Short Trip Down to Dorset

Since arriving back in the UK, both Naomi and me are back at work and so the travelling has all but finished for now. Thankfully over the Christmas break we had the chance to briefly get back on the road again, and we headed down to beautiful Dorset to spend some time with my family.

We spent three days parked at the top of the East Cliff along the Bournemouth seafront, ignoring the no trucks rule and avoiding getting a parking ticket. We enjoyed several sunrise and sunset walks on the beach, and spent a glorious day walking around Hengistbury Head.

On the day that we left to return to London, we avoided a short section of the A31, and instead drove up a beautiful but unnamed road that runs past Lin Wood in the new forest. We took the time to go for a walk through the beautiful scrub and wooded landscape, spotting some magnificent stags on the way.
