Tuesday morning - Jade and I walk along Sandbanks Beach to this point, after dropping my son at work at 8 am. (He's currently helping to build another few luxury apartments in this millionaire belt.) We only met other dog walkers on the beach. Everyone was saying how cold it was, but we were lucky because the rain didn't start till later in the morning. At one point I looked up and saw the Brittany Ferries ship towering over this hotel as it passed through the small gap to leave Poole harbour. I stood and watched it heading off to France growing smaller and smaller until it was just a blip on the horizon.
This morning we walked at Whitecliff Bay on the way back from Sandbanks. Then I took the scenic route home along Poole Quay and we saw the ferry in the middle of the harbour, pulling away from the port. It didn't look so huge in the big expanse of water.
