Yesterday, I was listening to Radio 4, as you do, and Open Country was about Brownsea Island, which we visited in October.
Now, if you read this blog regularly, you might know that I have a *slight* obsession with Dorset - and especially West Dorset, but Brownsea Island is located at the other side of the county: you take the boat from Poole Harbour.
The island is a brilliant place where nature has been wonderfully preserved and where you can still catch a glimpse of the elusive red squirrel (we saw five or six, but they were too quick to take a good picture!). There are no predators on the island and therefore they thrive!
Look, proof! (Can you spot him?)
Here's a picture gallery showing you the varied faces of the island. You discover stuff round every corner.
It's blissful, and you genuinely leave the modern world behind when you're there (which you have to do from time to time).
Listen to the programme HERE (it lasts 25 minutes). I really had all those images in mind whilst listening.
I think therefore I write.
