The small pond with an island, in need of attention.

 

Off we go. today is sunny with a chill in the air, remember we are by the sea. Occassionally the warmth could be felt on our backs

Wavy walls. (Crinkum [or Crinkle] Crankum). Have done a post about these rare walls.

The yacht haven, millions of pounds here, not just boats but cars as well

Winter look of the old Lido.

I used to come here when in my junior years of school. Still never learnt to swim. Still do not like water. Getting into it that is. Although did make a resolution this year to learn to swim, yeh right!

 

 

 

The Lymington Lido.

Now called Lymington

Sea Water Baths.

  2. I went to Lymington a few years ago and loved it, but I only remember the town and the waterfront. There’s a lot to see, I must return!

    • I grew up in and around here, and yes there is so much more now, the marsh and walls I walked along is all reclaimed. Could not walk that far in my youth… for the better by the looks of it. thank you Gilly and welcome always.

  5. Fantastic, Gerry! Thank you so much! 🙂 I’m sorry I didn’t get here sooner. I didn’t get a pingback or I would have made sure I did. Hectic at ours right now, preparing for my daughter coming for Easter. I loved being shown Lymington though your eyes. (I’m not much of a swimmer either- I really should join you for those lessons 🙂 )
    I’ll look forward to the longer version in the Summer! Many thanks again, and for all your support too. Happy Spring!

    • Hopefully the weather will get a little warmer,,, getting the sun but not the heat…. Not sure why pingback didn’t happen.. I have more on Lymington and my ex- home village Brockenhurst etc but will see what happens on any future walks. Thank you Jo welcome always.
