Mudeford


Took a midweek trip, down to Mudeford, for lunch with some friends. The weather was brilliant, blue skies and sunshine. Needless to say, for this time of year, it was crisp and the wind was brisk

Fishing boats still land their catch on Mudeford Quay. Their pots and markers are stacked ready for use.

After a warming lunch and a very smooth pint, courtesy of the Haven House Inn, we took a stroll around the quay enjoying the low winter sun as it illuminated the Black House and beach huts over towards Hengistbury Head. A couple of swans were enjoying the sunshine too.

From the quay there are fine views all around …..

…… and further along the shore towards Avon Beach you can get fine views across to the Isle of  Wight and The Needles.

After a gentle stroll along the prom it was time for a nice hot chocolate at the cafe on Avon Beach before returning to the car and heading for home.
