South Haven Point to Swanage
We caught the Berrys to Bournemouth. Then it was an open top bus through leafy suburbs and Sandbanks to the ferry. August Bank Holiday traffic had already put us behind and the coach driver wanted us back early, but we finally set off at 12:50 along the beaches of Studland.
Pub number one was appreciated on a warm day. The signs gave us a choice of another stretch of beach or a pint. So the Bankes Arms at 13:45 it was. It was busy with plastic glasses. However we had nice pints of Purbeck IPA (4.8%) and Pig on the Wall (4.3%) for £7 in the beer garden.
The next leg took us over the headland and down into Swanage where we came across the Crow's Nest an hour later on the outskirts of Swanage. The friendly staff served us with Ringwood Best (3.8%) and Adnam's Broadside (4.7%) for £6.20.
This only left time for a brisk ten minute walk into Swanage and the bus back to Poole.
