A South Coast Trip: Sean, Highcliffe and Barton-on-Sea, Hampshire and Dorset - 17th March 2013

The first part of a few days down south starts with Sunday dinner around Sean and Michelle's house in Hordle. This is followed with a trip down the road from the Premier Inn in Highcliffe to the recently-ish-restored Highcliffe Castle (a derelict burned-out shell when Nosher lived in the area) and on to Barton on Sea beach (Nosher's childhood haunt). Finally, we have lunch in the Hare and Hounds in Sway and Hamish swings by on his way home for lunch.
