Sandbanks - a little bit of heaven

Now I know why it's called millionaire's row.... Sandbanks is a truly beautiful place to hang out, even when the sun's not shining. I've just got back from a two day treat - it's been a hard weekend saying goodbye to eldest daughter and depositing her alone at Leeds Uni  so a windy walk on the beach was just what the Doctor ordered to blow away the cobwebs.

We stayed at The Sandbanks Hotel which has been refurbished and is now 4 star (it had been a seventies throwback but that's all gone). They've created a wonderful beachside terrace with an outdoor bar which I am sure would be quite fantastic in the summer. And the brasserie restaurant which serves the fresh catch-of-the-day overlooks the sand and out to the Isle of Wight and Bournemouth along the coast. If these pictures don't convince you to go then I don't know what will....
