Nosher's Birthday Trip, New Milton - 26th May 2007

It's Nosher's 40th Birthday, so following a night with the Brome massive in The Swan, Nosher and Isobel head down to New Milton, Hordle and Christchurch on the south coast for a visit to Sean and various rellies.

Sean's grown some mid-life-crisis hair and flails around in the kitchen

A blurry Isobel, a visitor, Sean and Michelle, and a plate of Nosher-cooked barbeque food

Sean whips out a surprise birthday cake (with, luckily, only four candles on)

Nosher and Isobel head down to a very wet Barton-on-Sea seafront, and Nosher's favourite childhood haunt

Nosher's favourite rock groyne

The seas pound the seafront at Barton

The houses on Barton-on-Sea's seafront still cling tenuously to the clifftop

A shelter on Barton cliff top

A rain-soaked bench sits empty on the clifftop

The rain softens the view out of the Beachcomber café's windows

A seagul flies over the rain-swept shelter

A lonely shelter

Isobel shows Rowan a few chords on the guitar

On Vincent Road in New Milton, a totally cool ghost house

A pigeon enjoys the inclement weather

A swan in the rain

A swan oils its feathers

Gold trifoils on the wrought-iron gates of Christchurch Priory

The rainy cobbled path leads from the priory to the town

Back at Seans, Holly the cat shows off her secret fur

The cat rolls around

Back from the South Coast, Nosher spots a 'traffic rozzer' policeman scarecrow

Still in Finningham, another scarecrow

Lined-up trees in Finningham
