Poole...my second home!

I live in Poole, a large coastal town and seaport in Dorset, south of England. World renowned for its award winning beaches, beautiful harbour, sailing and the pottery that bears the name of the town, Poole is fast becoming known as the St Tropez of the south coast.

**********
The Poole park was constructed on land donated byLord Wimborne and was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1890. The park's main feature is a large man made lagoon that is home to different ducks, geese and seagulls.




**********
The Hightreet, rows and rows of shops and deli that will cater to all taste.it offers 3 major coffeehouses - Starbucks, Costa Rica, Nero- within few yards of each other- not to mention English delicatessen.

Poole Harbour is one of several which lay claim to the title of the second largest natural harbour in the world, next to Sidney Harbour.



**********

The Brownsea island is home to a thriving population of the scarce and threatened red squirrel and offers winter shelter to a quarter of the UK's winter population of avocets; a black and white bird with a long, curved beak.
The island is a fantastic location for bird watching. It is a habitat of national and international importance for a variety of birds including dunlin, kingfishers, common and sandwich terns and oystercatchers.






one good thing about all these is they're all within 5 - 20 minutes walk from my place -literally, at my front door and my backyard!
