Home of the Beach Hut....

Two Tiers of Beach Huts Here...
Bournemouth really is the home of the beach hut. 
It was here on Bournemouth's seafront way back in 1909, that the first municipal beach hut was built.
That particular beach hut number 2359 is still in use, all 7ft X 7ft of it. 
Over the years beach huts have become a bit of a British Institution with an estimated 20,000 situated along the British coastline. 
Nearly 2,000 of those can be found here in Bournemouth....

A Winters Walk on the Beach...


In my opinion one of the best times of year for a walk on the beach is the winter... The sands can be deserted and your walk might well allow you to walk along the waters edge without meeting another person at all......A walk along the beach on a dull day as in the picture here can actually brighten up your day....

To Sit Awhile.....


 A seat on any walk is an open invitation to sit awhile....time to sit in silent reflection.

Water Tower #2

Water Tower - Second View
The last image that I posted on this blog was probably the accepted standard angle of view of the Water Tower in the Bournemouth Gardens.... 
However, I have always enjoyed taking images from slightly more unusual angles of view.... After taking the earlier more normal image I then took this shot from a different angle...
By concentrating on the upper section of the tower and including the overhanging trees it has produced what is for me a more interesting photo of the tower...

Water Tower....

The Water Tower

This water tower is situated in the upper section of Bournemouth Gardens....The tower was built sometime between 1883 and 1903 in order to supply water for a fountain.
The gardens start near the pier approach with the Lower Gardens and as you walk in a north westerly direction you make your way through the Central and then the Upper Gardens where you will find this water tower....


*NB: Sorry that I have neglected this blog over the past eight weeks but I have been working on a couple of projects over at my purpletraveller blog....
One of these was to complete my cycling mileage of 10,000 for the year and now that I have achieved that I should have more time to take pictures and post them here.

Pathway to Heaven...


Pathway to Heaven
Is this a pathway to heaven..? Well the path will get you as far as the church door, the rest is up to you I feel. 
Mind you when it's raining, the path being made up of thousands of small shiny pebbles becomes so slippery, that if you are not careful it would be very easy to slip over and get part way to heaven....well as far as the hospital at least....
These type of church paths seem very popular in North Devon where this image was taken, so if you are visiting the area in the rain...... just take care!

Spying on You....

Spying On You......
I saw this outbuilding on a large country estate in the county of Devon ... It kind of gives you the feeling that it is spying on you.
