Later this afternoon we drove Flo and Dillon to Brockenhurst where we left them to wander for an hour while we continued up Rhinefield Road passing
parched moorland featuring walkers and ponies on our way to the
woodland along the Ornamental Drive.
I have often photographed pictures like these which appeared on https://derrickjknight.com/2022/03/14/from-wilverley-plain-to-rhinefield-road/ of the stream that runs under the road.
Never before have we seen it as dry as this.
The day was overcast and humid – weather which kept the ponies mostly seeking shade.
This evening we dined on a second sitting of Hordle Chinese Takeaway’s excellent fare, with which Jackie and I drank TsingTao beer, and Flo and Dillon drank Ribena.
