Deserted at 0730 on a beautiful sunny Sunday morn. Strong winds , which lasted all day,buffeting the car, twiggy branches littering the roads, wheelie bins over and bold birds boomaranging backwards. Just to the west is the shy source of the just 7 km long River Bourne (a common name for a seasonal stream) which drains down to the logically named Bournemouth - a blob of urbanisation and crowdedness strung out along 7 miles of beaches, refered to by itís Council in a nicer term as Englandís Coastal Garden.Chris Pearson10/03/2019
