It's a long story.....but my children go to school 14 miles from where we live. Not your average school run! I was thinking today though what a splendid journey it is and thought I would share it with you.
This is where we start at Lee-on-the-Solent - We drive along the seafront to leave the village and this morning we saw a cruise liner on its way into Southampton.
Next we drive through Stubbington Village, a really old fashioned village with lots of quirky little shops, a reqally good Chinese Take Away and a fabulous Study Centre where schools go for a week at a time badger watching and beach combing.
Next we drive through Fareham - not the nicest place, but Fareham Creek is very pretty (when the tide is in!)
Then we have a choice to either do the M27 or to go over the top of Portsdown Hill. No choice if we are running early as the views are just incredible - in the summer! In the Winter you can do the whole journey across the hills in the clouds!
There is a really cool Fort that we pass by. It's free to go in and has tunnels from wars various to explore :o)
Then we come off the top of the hill!
Nearly there now - Havant is our destination!
As we come down and head towards Havant we pass Bedhampton station and have a quick look for any trains!
Then we are there! Phew! Time for the return journey then!
I hope you enjoyed sharing my journey!
