Blustery Beach Trips, Walkford and Highcliffe, Dorset - 29th July 2018

Whilst we're down Walkford/Highcliffe way, visiting and catching up with everyone, we fit in a couple of visits to the beach. The weather is on a brief hiatus from the extremes of summer and the wind has picked up fairly, but it's all rather refreshing after the opressive heat of the last couple of months.
