With old Numbum now in fine fettle we headed out of Bournemouth to catch the Sandbanks ferry to pick up the road to Swanage. Using the ferry saves a lot of miles.
We had an easy drive up to Portland Bill where we had lunch, followed by a drive about the area. Some beautiful views.
The roads in the afternoon were narrow with tall hedges. Not much fun at all. Exeter at tea time was challenging but we found our way and had a good run down to Torquay where we had a bit to eat from a street vendor before heading to meet George Baxter, an internet friend who was putting us up for the night. George is one of the many very helpful people we have met. Thanks George!
Take an old couple and an even older car, add in over 4000 miles of driving and this is the result. This is the story of Numbum's drive round the UK coastline, driven by Owen and ably navigated by Pam. We hope you enjoy the journey. We will.
