A night view in Weymouth (floh's pics)
March 30

I left by midday on foot, walking all the way through Poole and around Poole Bay searching a spot to hitch-hike or at least catching the bus as the day was advancing fast. At least I admired the landscape on the bay and on the park surrounding it, where there is a big mansion located.

I managed to reached the neighbouring town and then it was late afternoon, so I needed to find a bus stop in case I wouldn't manage to get anywhere else. Luckely, I got someone who picked and brought me to Wareham where I was at a Bus stop, I still had another hour before the bus to Weymouth came. So I simply hitched again and within 2 rides I was in Wool (one being with 2 Northern Irish soldier).

I also had a look at the great Dorset landscape and some cities looks pretty attractive.

One having still some fortification from the Saxons time. From Wool, I got 2 other rides and I was in Weymouth Station by dark just at the same time that Floh arrived. But I was so hungry, we needed to wait until after 9pm before going to our host. So we went to Tesco to get some food for tonight and tomorrow on the ferry and the Island.

Then had a night walk through Weymouth and its harbour, spotting where we need to be in the early morning for check-in before ending up in a pub for a drink when our host called us.

We went to have a talk to our host whom offered us wonderful hospitality again and great indian food (spicy for me!) before we prepared to sleep. It was a funny night with Floh.
Tomorrow, we will visit another part of Europe: The Channel Islands!
