A Christmas Market, New Milton, Hampshire - 24th November 2018

It's a bit of a rainy day, but Jon the Hair is in New Milton on a rare visit, so we meet up in Costa on Station Road for a hot chocolate. Luckily, it's the New Milton Christmas Market, so there's also a bit of activity going on in town and all the roads are closed off

Onions on Old Milton Road

We stop off at Winchester Services on the M3
