Swanage is a Victorian seaside time in Dorset. We had sailed from Weymouth and moored up in the bay, taking a mooring buoy at a cost of £10 a night.
The town is hugely popular as a summer holiday destination, especially during their week long carnival week. and the long wide sandy beach is also a huge attraction for families.
Ballard Down is a headland which separates the town from nearby Studland. This impressive chalk downlands once formed a continuous ridge between what is now Dorset and the Isle of White It forms the eastern most part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
We decided to jump in our Dinghy and explore this bit of coastline a little closer. We have previously explored some of this impressive coast, however the last time was at the wheel of a powerful RIB so needless to say it whizzed past! This time we could take it at a more leisurely pace!
