South-England

with 3 comments

Saturday morning at 7 o’clock, we took off for a 4-day-familytrip to South-England. We left Mortsel with a nice sunrise and clear sky, but arrived 4 hours later by boat in Dover with dark black cloudy skies, which would soak us with rain the next 3 days… Welcome to England!

The first day we stopped at Seaford, which has a really nice pier, then we went to the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head, the highest point along the south coast of England with beautiful white chalk cliffs.

The next day we went to New Forest, a province with a lot of forests , duuuh, and nice small villages. But mostly known for its ponies who stand in the fields, in the forest, in the middle of the street,… or just anywhere they want actually!
In the town of Beaulieu we were welcomed by many of these ponies, and every country I go to I love to make pictures of the local animals, so a selection of some ponypics ofcourse…

Not only ponies live in New Forest, also “wild” pigs roam in the forests.

But we saw more of the less nice side of autumn! Rain and winds up to 130 km/h !
Some pictures that say a lot about the weather.

Portsmouth was really nice, but also a little bit the Benidorm of South-England.

I saw this at a graveyard, I thought this is a quite funny spot to put a sign like this
