@vanessa beautyful indeed
@sumudu Thanks. Already too hot for me!
@vanessa I like this shot!
@Eyebee Thank you. Local country park in East Dorset. A favourite place of mine.
@vanessa I like Dorset. My parents live in Bournemouth.
@Eyebee Ha! Just down the road from me. I’m in Verwood, kind of between Bournemouth & Salisbury. Moved here from London 6 years ago and not a single regret. Well, I wish Dorset waa nearer to Yorkshire, but that’s all.
@vanessa I don’t know Verwood well, but I know where it is.it used to have a railway line to London.
@Eyebee That was a long time ago! There’s a significant lack of public transport round here. Even Ringwood doesn’t have a station, but at least it has National Express. I just love the scenery, the friendly people and, for me, the amount of music-making that goes on round here.
@vanessa My parents used to live in Ferndown. They moved there in 1993. My mother has complained about the slow but sure cuts in bus service in the area ever since!
@vanessa One of my brothers lives in Ringwood. I have taken National Express there a few times. It runs from Heathrow Airport which is a few minutes bus ride from where I live.
@Eyebee Yes, it’s a handy service. Many a time I’ve been along that route, though from Victoria. It’s not a bad journey, most of the time. I’ll be getting the coach up to London at the end of August – attending a wedding, an Indian one, which will be fab.
@vanessa It annoys me though that all of the coach services cost substantially more from Heathrow than Victoria though. Even those journeys, such as to Ringwood, Oxford or Bath that are shorter than from Central London!
@Eyebee Yes, they do, don’t they. I noticed that. There is usually a cheap ticket to/from Victoria, but no reductions at all from Heathrow. And it’s sometimes quicker to get off at Heathrow & get the tube than trek into London by road.
@vanessa Victoria Coach Station is such a pig to get to. A pain of a walk with suitcases from the Underground. I always feel is quite a seedy place too; much like Greyhound bus stations in the US.
