Lymington: Back on dry land

Posted by daveb on August 5th, 2007

We managed to sneak onto ferry in Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) and get back to Lymington (on the UK mainland) a little earlier than booked and pointed Shirley the SatNav towards our B&B to expedite a much needed bath for the two of us. The B&B sat on the lovely grounds of a mediteranean-style hotel and our hosts were very welcoming. The damp tipi of the Isle of Wight already seemed half a world away. Bathing was followed with The Great Muddy Laundry Sortout for the next day’s laundry expedition. We did manage to leave the four walls, and dry ceiling, of the B&B for a couple of hours to enjoy really good meal in a local pub and then stolled along the quay amongst the yachts and the fishermen.

Lymington has a really pretty high street, perpendicular to the coast. It narrows and narrows until you almost get wet feet. Boutique stores intersperse the [now] inevitable march of the chain store. Be prepared though: Lymington does not come cheap.
