Yesterday we took a drive to Smallhythe Place in Tenterden, Kent, where we visited the former home of the actress, the late Ellen Terry.  And yes it was raining… you could feel it in the air so we do our outside wander before heading indoors to view the house.

Lapping it up – New Forest Pony

New Forest Pony

One of my favourite places to visit is Hatchet Pond when I am in the New Forest.  Hatchet Pond which is not far from Beaulieu is a haven for wildlife.. dog walkers as well as a lovely picnic area. Ponies, dogs, wildlife, and a scenic view.. my idea of heaven.

There is a car park at the location.  Just a minute’s walk from the car park and you are at Hatchet Pond.

Yachts on the Marina

Back in 2014, we headed to Hampshire for a long weekend and one of the places we visited was Riverside Marina in Lymington.  I couldn’t believe how many yachts and small boats were moored there.  As well as the small boats whilst there we also watched the Isle of Wight ferries go to and fro.
