Road trip - Corfe Castle and back to Bournemouth

After our walk at Studland we travelled on round towards Corfe Castle (although we didn't stop there)...still nice to take the drive though .

Part way round we stopped at a view point



 and could see Sandbanks in the distance...


zoomed in...


and zoomed in a bit more, but even then I didn't zoom as much as the camera could have done...



and then on round past Corfe Castle 






and on to Wareham...with flooding from the river that couldn't cope




I've put together a short video of part of this journey...it does jump from Corfe to Wareham, so please bear that in mind...


and so to Poole where we stopped for lunch where I took the opportunity to sketch (any excuse)






  with that we made our way 
back to Bournemouth
- it was a great day out -

our

 next location is Arundel

stay tuned....

    1. Glad you enjoyed the journey CJ. Yes, the ruins of the castle are quite an iconic part of the scenery down there. A long time since I climbed up there to look at them closely though.
