When I walked around the Keyhaven – Lymington Nature Reserve recently I finished up at the boat yard I now know is the Lymington Yacht Haven. Today I chose to begin at the Haven and wander around it.
Jackie therefore drove me to Pinckney Path from which I had returned to Normandy Lane.
The woman walking towards me pointed to this sign giving the history of the route
through to the boats.
A walker, presumably having emerged from the bird sanctuary, passed me as I stooped to photograph supports of a boat.
Other ramblers could be seen on the far side of the reserve, with the ferry boat making for the Isle of Wight beyond.
I suppose this was really a dry dock area, with boats being supported by wooden struts and other devices,
such as these container drums.
A variety of hulls were prepared for work.
Reflections were seen on car windows
and on the hulls of the cleaner boats.
There was little work being undertaken, but this gentleman climbed down from ‘Plymouth’.
Walking through the boat yard led to the marina where boats and their reflections shimmered in the late afternoon sunlight.
This evening we dined on further helpings of the roast duck and savoury rice, supplemented by spring rolls. I drank more of the cabernet sauvignon.
