Stroll down to the beach

Met Mr B after tennis for coffee. His partner G came too. Dentist called to say they had a cancellation so could see me TODAY (rather than October). Preferred to get the filling out of the way, so went home, refreshed and off again.

10 mn walk, waited outside for my 2pm appt. My lovely dentist decided I didn’t need a filling (I must have misunderstood his comment on my previous visit). So walked away happily, with my wallet intact.

The blip is of the path down from Westover Road, into the Lower Gardens. 5mns walk and you’re down on the main beach.


Thanks to RockArea for today’s Wide Wednesday challenge ‘History’

“ The Lower Gardens in Bournemouth are only a five minute walk from the main shopping centre, the beach and the pier. They are Grade II Listed Gardens and have the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award for 2020. Visitors who walk through the gardens will be amazed by the beautiful floral displays that combine a range of colours, textures and scents. The Gardens also have plenty of activities to keep visitors busy including music at the Pine Walk bandstand, an aviary, mini golf course and an art exhibition during the summer. It's a beautiful setting to just sit and watch the world go by with a coffee or have a delicious picnic with friends and family as well as a welcome haven from the hustle and bustle of the town. During the winter there is the fantastic Christmas Tree Wonderland which features a beautiful trail of Christmas trees and seasonal activities and attracts thousands of visitors every year. There is also a large rock garden which was built in the 1930s”
