photoblog image Studland Bay 1/7

Studland Bay 1/7

Having featured a couple of images from Sandbanks over recent weeks I've finally got round to posting the series this week. Studland's 5km. of sandy beach is a popular tourist destination, owned and managed by the National Trust since 1982. It is characterised by an extensive ridged dune system that has developed since 1700 and forms a key site for coastal geomorphology studies.

 

We had a busy day yesterday, Mothering Sunday, out all morning and Chris and Caroline with their families for lunch during the afternoon so SC had to take a bit of a backseat so if I didn't get time to comment on your picture it doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it, normal service resumed today I hope.

The sea is very languid today, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Like Swanage, just the other side of the fare headland, it is a big bay and somewhat sheltered from the elements.
Tropical looking, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is certainyl a place that can be very warm in good weather.
Oh this is so lovely! Nice shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: I am sure you would really enjoy a visit and stroll along this beach Elizabeth, I guess living where you do beaches seema long way away, even more than they are from where I live.

A lovely vista with Old Harry in the middle distance and the Isle of Wight on the horizon
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you are quite familiar with Studland, we were lucky it was so nice for our visit.

I was in that very spot two weeks ago - birding for sea birds
Brian Walbey: The you know what a nice place it is to visit Lisl.
Good for you, Brian, to now see the series. Bring it on.
Brian Walbey: I hope you enjoy what you see Ginnie, quite different to the coast near where you live.

It almost looks tropical. We have Mothering Friday when the grandchildren pitch up for the afternoon. The parents then come and pick them up slowly - sometimes so slow it ends up in a braai (our version of a bbq).
Brian Walbey: It can get veryw arm at Studland in the mid summer, it is on our south coast. In the USA they have a Mothering Sunday they call Mothers Day but that is later on in the year, the important thing is to recognise everything that our Mothers mean to us and us to them bearing in mind the time they spent bringing us up.

Jolie vue d'ensemble.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine place to see and visit.
A very tranquil scene Brian

We fed the tribe home made cakes yesterday afternoon grin
Brian Walbey: We had the place almost to ourselves it being mid school term in the week. Maureen decided to cook for everyone so we had Roast Pork and all the rest of it but she left the clearing up to the girls.

Seems we are homing in on the famous Studland nudist beach.
Brian Walbey: Not quite Chad, it is further along the beach off to the left of the picture.
I always enjoy your trips to natural places and I love the beach!

I just breath in and breath out the fresh air here after seeing this picture. This is a wonderful view, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place to visit as long as the children are still at school, otherwise it's busy.
Better than looking out the window today- rain rain and more rain
Brian Walbey: IInded it was horrible yesterday wasn't it, bit better today although the Sun has decided to go in.
A lovely seascape, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, it is a nice place to visit.

I frequenting that cafe in late January before heading on to Old Harry and Swanage. The weather was noting like this, though!

Sometimes there are things even more important than Shutterchance.
Brian Walbey: No doubt it was sitting in side weather in January.

What a lovely view on the Channel and its different colours.
Our Mothers' Day is later on in the year.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely view from there and you can just make out the Isle of Wight on the horizon.
for some reason i get a subtle but nevertheless strong tropical Asian feel from this image, Brian - if only there were a couple of coconut trees. a very pleasing view.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Ayush, it is like a little oasis of something not quite English.
