We left France for England having found flights with Ryanair, Nantes - Bournemouth and back for free (but 50€ taxes).
Had a drive around Poole Harbour and then crossed to Studland Beach by chain ferry.
In England there are notices telling you what to may or mayn't do, even when and where to take your clothes off. Fortunately, due to the inclement weather, we avoided having to gaze at unclothed people - can you imagine the shrinkage? . . . . . . . brrrr.
Later, sampled the local speciality, Dorset Cream Tea (tea, scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream).
