. . . and if I had two and a half million pounds I could buy this house and live 1 minute up the road from this beach, at Sandbanks, Poole, Dorset, UK.
But I don't, so whenever we go to visit family down south we just all wrap up warm, pile into cars, find some free street parking , and go for a walk. Which we did last week. But none of us can resist the shells, and because there'd been some blowy weather recently there were lots more than usual, and more variety.
Having grown up in this place I miss the sea where we live now, miles from it just south of Manchester.
