A Travellerspoint blog

UK 19 to 23 August 2011

We left Paris early in the morning to make our way back to London. Got to Calais at 12non only to be told that our reservation for the ferry had been given to someone else and that the earliest ferry they could put us on was at 4pm. So we spent a few hours waiting around in Calais before we could get on the ferry and get back to London. Pauline waited fro us in London till we got back at 7pm and then we got a train back to her place, very tired from a long day of travelling. Saturday morning we drove to New Forest to meet with Stephens's parents and have lunch in lovely village pub. Traffic was a nightmare, took us almost 3 hours to get there. After lunch we drove to Dorset to Stephen's parents and went for a leisurely walk on the beach in the evening before getting an early night. Sunday morning the weather was not too god but we made our way to Poole and then had a lovely breakfast looking out over the sea. From there we travelled through the country all the way down to Portland Bill, stopping for lunch on the way. Made our way to Stephen's parents that evening for a great dinner. Monday morning we went into the village of Christchurch, walked around, had a pub lunch and then caught the ferry along the river to the beach near Stephen's parents. Had sundowners at a beach bar and then walked home. Tuesday we got a late start and made our way back to Pauline and Stephen's after an enormous lunch. Got home at about 4 and spent the evening chilling.
