The beach in winter, Lymington & Milford on Sea

DSCN2159eWhen the sun came out on Sunday morning, we packed up the car and headed to the coast for the day. We visited Lymington and Milford on Sea, drove through the beautiful New Forest and had a stroll on the beach. It was beautiful, if a little bit blustery!

DSCN2293eMilford on Sea has a stunning coastal path walk and is also beach hut heaven. I’ve never seen so many huts on one beach; hundreds of different colours and on different levels with little interconnecting pathways, blissful. I had the beach almost to myself, and was happy just to watch the sun on the waves and admire the beach huts. I always feel better after seeing the sea; it’s a deeply instinctive thing…I wonder if this is universal or just island-dwellers!
