Here, you can observe that the water is starting to recede and the sandbar in the middle is slowly appearing. The waters here in the Solent are tidal waters so beach goers are advised to keep an eye on tidal times and announcements. As you can later on see, the sandbars can take you as far in to the middle of the Solent in this area but the tides can also come quickly which poses a risk of drowning to people who are not aware about the behaviour of these waters.
As always, have a nice day but SAFETY FIRST!
Ferries like Red Funnel use the Solent to ferry people and vehicles from the English mainland to Isle of Wight and other nearby destinations.
Isle of Wight houses the former Royal Residence to Prince Albert and Queen Victoria. Check out a link to our blog below:

As you can see on the noticeboard, we’re not allowed any further so we have to turn and retrace our steps back to the carpark.
As you can see here, the sandbar is now exposed as the tidal waters have receded.

People watching is always a good pasttime. Here, we are zooming in the Solent for a closer look on what is happening out there.
England has a rich maritime heritage. No wonder the English & the Brits always have an affinity to anything with water.
It has been a lovely Summer day well spent by the beach. Visiting beautiful places like this always give you that sinking feeling, a bittersweet kind of nostalgia. It’s been a lovely day, but of course the sun will soon set, and we have to go home and so with the other visitors.
There is always beauty in travel, because it opens up the depth of emotions stored inside of you and you get to feel the vulnerability of being human.
You have to process life at a deeper and more spiritual level. Because what good is travelling if you have seen everything but have experienced nothing.
Embrace the full experience and let your inspiration guide you to your next travel destination.
