this card is for my FIL for fathers day ~who loves to walk along by the sea ~as we live on the Dorset coast we have many beautiful sandy beach walks to enjoy ( look across to the Isle of Wight, (and even see France a very clear day) and Poole quay~to watch the boats, across the bay to Brownsea Island, and Sandbanks ferry across to Sudland ~and sometimes dream of living in one of those millionaires homes) ..i am very lucky living here, the coast on one side and a short car journey and i`m in the New Forest, with all it`s country villages and ponies.
