Last weekend we walked out to Hurst Castle.
It was a somewhat strange feeling sitting on Hurst Castle, sheltered from the wind in a warm sunny spot, watching the water from the Solent rushing out through the narrows there.
I've been backwards and forwards through these narrows by boat several times now, but not really appreciated just how powerful those currents are, until sitting there watching them from the shore.
The picture shows the waters near Keyhaven, looking along the narrow spit towards Hurst Castle. The white tower is the lighthouse, with IOW in the background.
