After my back operation, family life is slowly starting to get back to normal. The thing I have missed most is not being able to get out and about for our lovely family walks, and explores. So this weekend I got a little taste of normal life, and boy I cannot wait for a lovely big family walk.
So for a little walk we headed off to Hill Head, somewhere we have visited regularly however my friend showed me a different car park! Oh the excitement in life!! Monks Hill Car Park, Salterns Rd, Lee-on-the-Solent PO13 9NJ
So we headed off and parked in this car park, it’s free and easy access to path ways.
If you were to park up, face the sea and take the path to the right. Then you can walk along and find a little park, a green open field and a sailing club. These paths are perfect for kids riding their bikes, with flat paths and a reward of a park to play in. Often on warmer days is an ice cream van too.
Path is at the end of these beach huts, and the start of the car park.
However we have often done that park, so we went left this time. The kids had a play on the beach, stone throwing, jumping down the hill and you can walk the dog here too.
The kids loved watching the planes taking off too. They fly right over your head, as the airfield is across the road. They’ve seen them from further down the beach taking off, but not right underneath. The planes pulling the gliders were pretty interesting for them to see so close.
Also right by the car park is a little hut called The Shack. It serves hot and cold food, ice creams, hot and cold drinks. So we picked up some little plates of chips each, small ones for 80p and larger £1. They were pretty tasty chips too. They offer quite a few things to eat too, and very good prices. Kids love being able to eat outside too.
If you follow this path all the way up you will arrive at Lee-On-Solent park. It’s a great big park, and my kids love this park. However it was a little far for me to walk this weekend, I will save that one for another day!
