Sandbanks on a Sunny Day in February

The sun shone on Saturday although it was still quite chilly. To make the most of it, we took Jade to have a run around on Sandbanks Beach, and I took my camera. There were quite a few dog walkers there, and some intrepid families picnicking and playing games. But the beach is so long and wide, you won't see many of them in my pics. Jade of course was rushing around and impossible to photograph until we found a seat for a few minutes. And we did have to keep tabs on her to make sure she didn't terrorise any little children not used to a  waggy-tailed dog wanting to make friends and play with them.

Looking east to Bournemouth 
  Looking west to the ferry to Studland: in summer the dog friendly part of the beach
 is the other side of this end of the dunes. In winter there are no dog restrictions.
 Those expensive Sandbanks beach huts
 Jade of course was rushing around and impossible to photograph until we found a seat for a few minutes.
The Poole Harbour side of Sandbanks

In case you didn't know, Sandbanks is a mile long peninsula that divides Poole Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world, from the sea. Properties on Sandbanks are among the most expensive in England. One of the famous residents is Harry Redknapp, football manager of Tottenham Hotspur, recently tipped to boss the England side after being found not guilty of tax evasion in the courts.
