Making The Most Of Milford Seafront

This morning I accompanied Jackie to the GP surgery where she was prescribed antibiotics for what is now a chest infection. Afterwards, she drove us to the car park alongside the

I ambled along the upper and lower promenades.

Hazy sea

The fog warning sounded as I took this hazy picture of the Isle of Wight and The Needles, after which the cafe has been wittily named.

Man and dog

This gentleman was perhaps searching for a sight of the island whilst his bored best friend was suggesting it was a waste of time.


A group of energetic retirees strode out, past the barriers that border the lower promenade where concrete huts once stood.

Throughout the day, Paul and I continued exchanging material for the forthcoming The First Gallery exhibition and flyer.

This evening we dined on Mr Pink’s, fish, chips, and pea fritters. Nothing was imbibed.

I am a septuagenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs

  1. One of my favourite parts of a visit to my Kent family is a visit to their beach hut, and watching the tide recede towards France (Or so it seems to me). Best wishes to Jackie for a speed recovery

  2. Thanks for sharing your slice of the sea with me!

    I’m always a little amazed (I shouldn’t be, when I think of the history, but I am), of all the shared place names between where you live and where I grew up (Tidewater, Virginia). We had an Isle of Wight, too! 🙂

    Enjoy this beautiful weekend!

  3. I wish I was (were?) there. Is it cold? Could people sleep over in the former huts?
    It’s a shame that dog gets all the way to the beach and can’t run!
    Dinner sounds yummy. Hope Jackie’s better ASAP.

      1. Derrick, I hope my questions don’t seem dumb. I actually really want to know – but from a person (well, you), not from a website. Please be sure to tell me if I become a pest.
        Everyone else does, har har.
