So this is Poole

You may remember my “I’m here!” post a while back which just so happens to be when I took all of these photos. I haven’t been taking nearly as many pictures as I did when I first arrived, but I think my camera is going to have to become a staple in my bag once again. Although I study at Bournemouth University, I live a little ways away in Poole. It may be a bit far for an almost daily bus ride, but Poole has many great features (many of which I’m sure I’ve yet to discover)!

The weather has become a mucky and cold sort of thing, but it doesn’t make the bus ride back to Poole any less comforting. This place has more or less started to feel like a home (away from home, that is). I figured it was about time I showed you my first impression. It definitely has a nautical feel with seagulls calling out and the smell of saltwater. Also, Poole Harbour just so happens to be the second largest natural harbour in the world!

I live right next to the railway and the sound of trains is constant. I’ve not seen one for a while, but the steam trains that came by always had me out of my bed and peering out the window at night.

    Ah you’re in Poole! So lovely… I was just there on Sunday in fact! My grandparents had a yacht in Poole Harbour when I was growing up… oh the memories :) you’re so lucky to be right by the seaside!

    Hi Eva, I’ve just seen your comment on my blog – to be honest I don’t know Poole town too well anymore, it looks so pretty from your pictures! But one place I’d recommend visiting if you haven’t already is Brownsea Island – it’s a beautiful place to explore and has peacocks roaming free! I hope you’re enjoying it down there :)

    Obviously, I automatically LOVE this town because of its name. And how picturesque! Glad to hear you’re doing well…I’ve missed you.

    Eva, Poole is absolutely gorgeous. I’m so daydreaming about wandering down those streets, thinking up endings to all the stories I’m working on.
